Creativity and art have been an integral part of my life since I was a small child. Although I love creating abstract paintings, I am equally drawn to printmaking, collage, drawing and three-dimensional works. I respond to my experiences and my works are based on place, time, memory, and experiences. I create instinctively and intuitively and often find that time ceases to exist and the act of creating becomes a meditation.
