My purpose and joy is to inspire others and help them connect to their creativity. I believe anyone can paint. It's my job to share the beauty and grandeur we can see and enjoy in full colour in every day life. Art is uplifting to the soul and makes you feel great.

My specialty is painting blooms, local produce and the landscape.
