I approach art making as a form of exploration, growth and self-expression. I create using mixed media. The subject varies with the medium used. My inspiration comes from gallery visits, personal photography or images seen on the Internet. This sparks my desire to create. Each art project is about learning and experimenting. Layers and textures abound in my work. I start with an idea or concept but like to be happily surprised when the art leads me in different direction. Problem solving plays a big part in the process of art making. I feel joy and surprise when a project is completed which I hope is felt by the viewer.
