Creative expression is what I love and enjoy through my art. Art appreciation was instilled in me at an early age by my parents who frequented Art Galleries, Museums, and juried Art Fairs. I learned to express myself through drawing and painting and it gave me a peaceful relaxing time for myself to grow.  Exploring different surfaces and using mixed mediums I try to achieve the mood and effect that draws your interest. I have used hand made papers, clay board, canvas, watercolor paper, watercolor and acrylic paints. I have begun using gold and silver leaf for an unusual effect. The creative process should never end, if only in our mind, never able to be put into art, it is still part of our growth.
