Art has always been a major part of my life from early childhood to present day; it is more than just an occupation, it�s a way of viewing life. Artists develop a keen sense of seeing the aesthetics of nature, and all that surround them. Artists are forever curious and have an attitude of continuous study, seeing beauty in the ordinary as well as the ugly and with a heightened sense of color, value, shape, texture and  form, create art. These elements are what excite and challenge me to try to create what I visualize... on paper, canvas, clay, wood or stone.

It is said that artists usually live long lives... because artists are  doing something they love to do, create something out of nothing and find it a very rewarding and uplifting experience.  An occupation in art, has its highs and lows, as does life, but it's an occupation that I wouldn�t trade for any other.
