my story

In kindergarten I discovered happiness finger painting. Bright colors, lovely messiness, what joy! I still love the tactile experience of art making. I aim to capture energy and feelings that elude words. Art is what  I do to keep grounded and whole.  Like sleeping or breathing it's essential.
