I believe that artists are born being creative. Art is in my blood. My parents were musical and they encouraged my artistic side, which was what I needed to feel comfortable in my own skin. I started drawing when I was about 10 years old, found poetry at 15 and began painting in my 20's I am self-taught. I paint what I feel and hope that someone will be touched or moved by it. My art is mostly abstract. I live in Norton, Ohio, USA. I am inspired by: nature, animals, spirituality and love. Other artists inspire me as well. I love looking at others' art! We each have our own style, yet we are all part of one family. I am proud to be an artist.
