I started drawing and painting in the 6th grade because of a positive remark on my artwork for a science paper. Little did I know that remark would take me on a journey into the art world for the rest of my life. When I couldnt paint I did ceramics or other arts and crafts. I definitely feel close to my Creator when I am creating artwork, and though I paint for myself I love when it brings joy to others as well. I have been accepted into several juried shows and won several awards.
