I think I was born to paint. At birth, I was given a tiny music box, the cover of which depicted a little girl holding a paint brush. I was thereby destined to art. When I paint, I feel like I am sharing the emotion of the moment. I strive to reach beyond what my eye sees and paint the emotion that I feel, filling my work with expression. I become part of each of my works, the unseen participant in the moment, and as that moment emerges beneath my brush, time and matter cease to exist, and I am pulled into a universe of light, shadow, color and energy, a universe of emotion where I am most at home.
