I remember developing an interest for painting very early on in life while watching my grandfather in his unfinished low ceiling basement. The smell of oil paints filled the entire space as I watched attentively his every brush stroke. Although fascinated by his talent as a child I did not start painting myself until my early 30's...but have not stopped since! As a self-taught artist my knowledge of creating an interesting canvas grows with each new piece as I tend change it up a little if I get too comfortable with a style.
My first collection named 'Africa Collection' took its first breath the same year my daughter took hers, in 2002. I've recently started the 'LuLu Collection' which I'm still having a great deal of satisfaction creating. I hope you see a little of yourselves in my work. If you do, then I have succeeded.
