Creative expression is as much a part of me as breathing. My art is a way for me to share my vision of the beauty I see in the world around me with others.
My inspiration can come from many sources, from the twist of a tree branch to beautifully colored flowers to the tilt of a ballerina's head. I work in a variety of mediums including pen and ink, watercolor and acrylic, and digitally, using many different programs and techniques. I am also an avid photographer.
