Most projects I begin never materialize the way I plan; the work takes me on a journey. My process involves meditation before and during each creative project as well as journaling about any personal issues that may arise as I seek to connect deeper into a chosen theme. My vision is to create work that expresses my true self and hopefully resonates with the viewer. I currently create work in watercolor, ink, oil pastel, and colored pencil.
