About the Artist
Making Art brings me joy!
My inspiration comes from the people, places and things that surround me. Flowers, fruits, and textiles fill my canvases.
When I create a piece, I use a combination of acrylic paint, fine art markers, and swatches of fabric.
In my studio I am surrounded by color, light, and music.
My hope is that you will find joy in viewing my work.
