About


“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Anaïs Nin – US
French-born author & diarist (1903 – 1977)

Creativity has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I started drawing at a young age, which led to painting and making any craft project that I could talk my mother into buying for me. I had and continue to have an unending desire to create!

I believe that in the act of creation, we find our true joy or bliss. I believe every person has the ability to create, and it’s the process of creating that ignites the imagination, quickens the heart, and brings fulfillment to our lives.

Thank you for viewing my art. May it inspire you to find your own kind of creative expression and bring you joy!
