Born into a family that values the creative side of life, I was encouraged to cultivate my talent. My love of painting and colouring go as far back as I can remember, starting with colouring books, paint-by-number sets and doodling on paper when I was little. I started my painting career with oils, but my favourite medium is acrylic. I also love working with mixed media and pen and ink.

If you wish to purchase any of the artwork shown here, please contact me using the contact form and I will be happy to discuss price and shipping with you.

I am inspired by nature, as well as fantasy and imagination. I search my heart for inspiration, hoping to touch the hearts of the people who view and purchase my work.

I hope you enjoy my work. I look forward to having you visit my site again as I add more paintings to my collection.
