INNER SANCTUM, a water color painting on a 15″ x 20″ piece of paper was my very first painting.

The first time I picked up a paintbrush, with no formal training in art, I used it to express my feelings, hopes and dreams. My heavily detailed street scenes with hundreds of people, my caricature-like portraits with personalized backgrounds, my lush landscapes, my breathtaking seascapes, and my tropical paradises include meaningful messages within beautiful surroundings.

Doing Art was a gift I never knew I had … but I discovered that painting what I felt gave me the insights and emotional strength to carry on whenever I wanted not to!
