'I paint to give me joy. If other people are happy with my work, that makes my day. I love exploring life through the eyes of an artist, it's never ever boring. Being an eclectic artist, I use almost all media and let my imagination run wild. Getting new artists excited enough to explore is thrilling for me.'
'To be an artist is exciting and painful at the same time. Exploring the inner self and stretching as an artist can be painful. But when you 'get it together', and put it on paper, board, canvas, or whatever, and someone understands it and likes it, that's excitement!'
