"I didn't know I could paint until nursing school. I was recently married, living in a dark dreary basement apartment. Since I was too poor to buy wall furnishings, I decided to make my own. I sat down with a blank canvas and realized I could paint! Since then, I have experimented with different styles and techniques. I hand-mix all my colors from the primary colors: red, yellow and blue, along with black and white.
I create whatever I think is beautiful, whether it be a portrait, animal, or even a single color. My artwork challenges me, giving me moments of clarity, frustration, and at times, euphoria. I thank God for my artistic abilities and for the precious beauty of the natural world around us."
