THE FACE BEHIND THE ART

When I paint, my spirit soars. I wish for the words to describe the energy I get from painting. This sensation has intensified over the years. As a young child in Northeast Arkansas, I began painting inspired by all the beauty around me. This was the genius of my creative journey.

 

I loved experimenting with colors and creating new color combinations. The joy I’d experience when colors would bounce off of each other has been an amazing natural high for me. Once I became a teenager I painted on canvas with acrylics because they dried faster than oils. My restless personality refused to wait for an oil painting to dry before another layer of paint could be applied.
