I love to create. My home today is filled with my own creations of drapes, murals, textured walls, jewelry and ornaments. As a child my favourite toys where crafts, art supplies and puzzles. I still love the smell of a new box of crayons and a coloring book. In fact that is how I ended up being a professional artist. I decided to draw my own pictures to color. Then at the age of 9, my friends wanted me to draw pictures for them. Little did I know I was embarking on an entrepreneurial path, by starting a business selling bookmarkers and pictures to my friends for 5 cents (enough money to buy candy at that time). Drawing became my biggest passion and nothing escaped being captured in my sketch book: animals, friends, movie stars, flowers, cartoons etc. In High School I experimented with a variety of mediums and received professional guidance in the areas of composition and color. Presently I am enjoying the challenge of not only capturing the images created in my mind but also the emotions accompanying them. I paint what inspires me at the time therefore my subjects are always changing.
