Artist Statement: 

Art has been a part of my life since childhood. I can recall spending many hours in elementary school  drawing faces and figures. It wasn't until I picked up a paintbrush in 2011, at the age of 32, that I felt the magic of creating again. I am deeply drawn to feminine beauty and the female face and figure is my muse. I paint the girl within me in all her forms. I am always seeking to explore her through color, pattern, texture and composition.
