I fell in love with art at the age of eight and consider myself a visionary abstract artist; however I appreciate all forms of art.  I know that my gift is a blessing and God is the inspiration behind all of my artwork.

 

I delight in the layering techniques I use when spray painting, and I use layers of colors bleeding through to create a masterpiece.  I strive for interest in surface texture as well as for depth and light, by using various medium to achieve the desire effect.

 

I push each painting to a higher level, witnessing each unfolding creations, to bring something from nothing into existence.  My paintings are intuitive, inviting the observers to think, dream and visualize the concept that exist in their minds and spirits.  My art aims to allow viewers to have an open mind and a big imagination.

 

I am driven by the desires of abstract paintings.  My collection, inspired by God, extends to a broad audience.  My ambition is to open up an art gallery for young talented students to develop their artistic skills at an early age.

 

I was handicapped by the lack of encouragement and exposure at an early age to develop her appreciation for art.  I am determined to use my God given talent to assist others like myself to be successful.
