Love, acceptance and gratitude are ideas that inspire most of my works of art. Everything in nature, music and my family also inspire me. My palette is filled with bright and joyful colors of paint because I feel they represent the loving and positive energy that surround me. I may begin a piece with a word, a poem or an essay and then let the work organically evolve. When I am in a space of creating without fear or self-judgment, the songs in my heart dance their way onto my canvas, and I experience pure creative joy.
