“I have been drawing and painting portraits since I was a little girl. I have always been pulled to the face and I now know that comes from a desire to connect. I feel a purpose in connection to the subject, connection to the process and connection to the viewer. While I paint I am in communication with my subject. We are in our own world together. This is my vehicle for self expression and story telling.”
I create to connect. I connect to myself through artistic expression and I connect to others through telling their stories and sharing the vision. Art is a vehicle for growth and brings me closer every day to essence of who I am. I have always chosen portraiture as my subject matter because I am fascinated by the human spirit. There are so many layers to see and to work through. I am committed to my art and I am inspired to use my creative voice .
