Exploring the mundane to find the marvelous I like to find the sensual contrasts, in a landscape or face, for me art is passion, discovery, evolution and an endless journey. Exploring the versatility of multiple mediums, I use texture and color to create interest. Although my inspirational triggers are everywhere it is often the medium itself that drives me.
