I have been painting since 2003, mostly with oils, but fell in love with pastels in 2017. My life is committed to art and daily focus on this career. I won two national awards for my work in 2016 and 2017. I exhibit each year in several national and international juried competitions.
The pursuit of happiness is a large part of my inspiration, whether that is reminiscing about sweet treats from childhood, or brightly colored flowers and bows, to my latest series that is an allegory for the mental process of finding happiness in your own mind.
