Artists Statement
My love for painting continues to grow as I observe the world around me. I draw inspiration from nature in all its forms, from the grandest landscapes to the tiniest blossoms. As I mature artistically, I endeavour to grow in other areas of life as well. I am constantly striving to develop my character and my faith. I hope to inspire others not only as an artist, but also as a person.
