Artist's Statement


To create is my passion. I observe the world around me, taking it all in., finding the essence. I take the simplest item to show it's true nature. Beauty comes from the inside, which is why I use different tools to find the world's inner glory. Whether it is with pastels, watercolors, inks, simple pencils, or just capturing it with a camera, to create is my passion, which is why I love art.
