ARTIST STATEMENT
For me, creating art is very relaxing; like reading a good book. Once settled down to create, much of the stress and cares of the day seem to be non-existent as the piece takes shape.

It is very enveloping. I lose all sense of time and place when painting. I forget about my surroundings. All is quiet. All is calm. Creativity is flowing.

I am painstakingly realistic which I find very difficult to break out of. My newer pieces are showing signs of change which is creating an excitement for me. The more I experiment the more I enjoy and love my work.
