And what of painting? Painting was my first love and my pathway into this artistic journey. Experiencing the wonder of the effects of brush and paint, I began to observe and translate, to bring both realism and impression to paper and canvas. I’d love to say that I am passionate about just one medium or type of creating but that is just not true. I embrace diversity and continue to explore and integrate a variety of media, gravitating to the one that best tells the story.
