The world is fabulous and unavoidable......art is the best way for me to engage in and celebrate life.”

‘I’ve always known who I am. An artist. It’s like being a dog..you are what you are. When I was three I told my mother “ I am an artist.” That hasn’t changed. My head is always overflowing with ideas…the ones that come out are really just my way of blowing off steam."
