"Drawing has always been a love of mine. Many sketchbooks fill my studio. Some sketches end up on a canvas as a painting, plain and simple! Combining the sketches with paints, papers and inks is magical and often unpredictable!! Stories are being told! The stories of women who remain true to themselves influence and inspire many of my paintings. I hope all who see my paintings can find a story within and walk away with a smile and joy in their heart!"
