I have been blessed by GOD with the beautiful gift of creating artwork. I discovered I could draw at the age of 5 or 6. I somehow knew to set an object on a table (my sister’s toy) and drew my first still life. During my teen years, I used charcoal, but longed for color, so I began using colored pencil. I moved on to pastel, tried watercolor, tried acrylic, then discovered oils. I knew then that I was an oil painter. I loved everything about it and still do!
