In 1999 I changed my career path to a full time freelance artist, having never worked in the art industry. It was bold, gutsy and a leap of faith. As I look back I smile at my innocence. How I have grown and learned since that time. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been a wonderful journey. My art training has come from practice, persistence, studying under well established artists, art books and videos. Learning is the cornerstone of my creativity. I feel we all have gifts to share with each other, mine is creativity. So here I am, sharing my passion with you. I hope you enjoy the journey with me.
