"I think challenge, inspiration and light coincides with almost every art work I create. Since I started my canvas art while living in Charleston, SC, I often use a color palette of sunrises, sunsets and soothing coastal waters.
As a finisher artist I love to feel the paint and the colors during the process to create. I work with several different mediums, metallic pastes, plasters, paints, minerals, acrylic, oil, and with every piece I use gold, silver or copper metal leaf, which gives a natural element of light, and edge."
