I have been a student of art all of my life, searching for just the right way of expressing myself. My first experience in printmaking was life changing and I knew I had found my passion. There are so many facets to printmaking that almost miraculously come together to create a final piece of art. For artistic stimulation, I draw on the landscape around me. My numerous pets are wonderfully inspiring and are willing models. I love experimenting with color and with shape combinations. The final work of art is almost always a pleasant surprise. I will never cease to experiment and learn.
