Artist statement  

Welcome to my Studio! As a spiritual soul, I yearn to express myself visually to connect my inner thoughts and feelings with a tangible output of raw textures of handmade paper integrated with fluid acrylics. Often the handmade paper gently emerges over the edge of the canvas or deckled paper suggesting our continued feeling of being figuratively 'rough' around the edges, but still beautiful and loved deeply by our God. The layers of fluid acrylic paint resemble the translucent and opaque parts of the inner being. My motto is "play first and refine later."  I feel like I let the Spirit move me and guide my hands after listening to a devotional or reading the Bible. I am inspired by colors and God's beauty in nature after a hike or taking a walk.
