“You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life.”   ― Mary Oliver

I am a self-taught artist.  I am one of those children who loved crayons, paste (even ate some every now & then), paint, anything to do with art.  I have always loved the smell of a new box of crayons.  Bright colors have always made my heart soar & my soul happy. Painting allows me to express my heart.  

My work can be described as happy, fun & whimsical.  My art reflects my personal journey of my heart.  I love to use many words & bold colors as an expression.  I love to paint “BIG”!  I have a passion for painting antique doors!  My painting is intuitive, using many layers of colors, stamps, spray paint and paper.  My motto of life is “ Be Free”!  My intention is in every single thing I do, I bring glory to Jesus!
