I am a native Floridian and one only has to watch a Florida Gulf sunset to see the magnificent beauty in nature. I believe there is an artist in everyone and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What one person responds to does not necessarily mean everyone will. Everyone has their own unique way of expressing themselves. I never thought that I would ever find something in which to express myself. I have found my niche. I enjoy painting. Every time I sit down to paint I lose myself in whatever I am painting. My inspiration comes from everywhere. Everywhere I look I find something beautiful that I want to paint.
