I graduated as an interior designer. But after several years, I realize that my true interest is making art. I focus on birds, fish, and other animals as they live and move in their own space. I paint in layers of acrylic, and oil, and often add fabrics around and in the animals to build textures and patterns. I explore color, movement, and imagination to pull the viewer into and through the painting. Each piece is an exploration of our neighbors in nature.
