Who I am...
My work is a very honest and powerful expression of the beautiful evolution of a human being. I create from within and when I start a piece, I do not hold onto a concrete image of what the painting should look like when it is finished. I put the pastel to the sheetrock and let it move. I let my mind guide the powerful force of my emotion with each line or curve of the pastel and I let the painting evolve into harmony.

As I continue to grow as an artist, I am learning more and more how to harness this creativity and to understand the beauty of the human experience. My work has become a therapy for me. It allows me to bring my emotions to life and to reflect on who I am and who I want to be.
