“Since a young age I have been drawn towards the healing arts.
The natural inclination has led me into a career as physical therapist and artist. I have been inspired and influenced by myths, legends and history, finding common thread in a straggle to maintain distinct identity. In those stories and symbols I have found a profound healing and transformative powers that drive my creative work. My intention as an artist is to remind a viewer of how strong, resilient and capable of healing we are. By recognizing those inner strengths we can begin to live a life that reflects the beauty of our true self.”
Artist Statement: “Painting for me is a powerful drive to create ideas, images and stories, and knowing that there is no magic until we share it.
