Watercolor, ink and colored pencil are my choice of media. When I place my pen to the paper, something exciting, raw and beautiful happens. My work sets me free from the everyday path of life.

I was born and raised in Redford Township, Michigan. Even as a child, I was a bit too avant-garde for my kindergarten teacher. During a parent teacher conference, she advised my mother that I would never become an accomplished artist because I was too creative with my colors, and did not stay within her perspective of art.

When I was growing up, like most artists with an initial fear of rejection, I became shy about presenting my work to others. Eventually, I just quit showing it to anyone, including my dear mother.

It took me many years before I gained the confidence to display my work. My partner and my peers in the art community encouraged me to move forward and display my artistic talents. When I finally did, amazing things began to happen. My very first exhibit was at the renowned Studio 807 in Orlando, Florida. I sold several pieces, which was a pleasant surprise.

My friends in the contemporary art world have always expressed to me that when you sell your first piece, your artwork has been validated. I was invited to the Orlando Museum of Art, 1st Thursday’s “Florida Grown” events, and sold work there. I was also invited by a Central Florida Art Auction, liveauctioneers.com to present one of my works, which was sold and is referenced on the internet.
