“Welcome to my world as I see it and my hands interpret it. I am fortunate and blessed to be able to share my vision with others. I believe our experience of beauty transcends our ability to speck about it. Its magic lies beyond the power of words.

God has given me this wonderful gift, so I could inspire other women to use their gift that God has given them. Paintings should give a ray of Hope to inspire not all the world is bad. Beauty is a gift… and most take it for granted.
I consider my work to be an extension of myself – optimistic, personable and a celebration of life. Painting energizes my soul, it has become a way of life, and I breathe and feel the transformation of colors, patterns and light. Making a blank canvas come alive is my passion, it is the journey. Capturing moments in time, whether big or small, allows you to reflect on moments and memories in your life.
I hope that my work inspires others to feel serenity, see beauty, and view life… Life as I see it, through my eyes”.
