Her life-like images portray warmth, and her landscapes and floral still life portraits are refreshing and dramatic. She says, “I paint what I love. I try to paint passionate paintings…. not just workable paintings, I feel a heart-felt connection to my work.
Finding out what skills I have and what skills I need to improve is a big part of my journey. Taking classes from some of the best artists out there has become an ongoing part of this goal.”
