Born on a U.S. Air Force Base in Morocco, Africa; then whisked off to Spain for a
number of years, an Armed Forces child. My introduction to the world was one of
respect for varying cultures as well as our own. My introduction to painting came
at the early age of eleven. By the age of fifteen, I was assisting my mother with
painting pieces for commissioned restaurant and business sales.
A desire to express life through colorful documentation continued into my adult
life, where it continues to grace the canvas. My heart finds beauty in simple
things which often get overlooked in our daily lives. Interactions in life, countless
landscapes and the play of light, all await translation into a colorful view through
which we can appreciate another’s perspective.
The desire to express this passion for the world has led me on a beautiful and
amazing journey, continuously working to improve my skills, deepen my insight
with all things which surround us and to share this perception with great feeling
and representation when capturing a moment passing.
