Artist's Statement

God has blessed us with the beauty of nature.I try to capture this in my work and share it with the world.My artwork thrives on the love I have for trees and textures in nature.My works are emotions and feelings transmitted from my eyes and heart to the canvas.I love to create mixed media artwork with heavy textures,rich colors and elements of nature in the
actual artwork.
