Artist’s Statement:

While I’m creating a piece of art I get lost in the process and hours become minutes, that's true bliss. Art in any medium creates a feeling, and that’s the goal to invoke feeling! It’s a real joy when someone appreciates a piece of art work and wants to give it a home. It's my hope to keep the arts alive--Support your local ARTS!
