I believe everyone has a gift. A gift they were born with that should be recognized, studied and shared with others. Mine is art. I have been exploring this gift my whole life. Painting has been the main form of art I've delved into over the last several years. I can paint the world as I see it. I have taken many art classes and have studied at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. I've met a myriad of artists and they all have a unique kind of passion that keeps them engaged in their medium of choice. This is a passion that I too have. I feel most in my element with a paintbrush in my hand, ready to create. I will never get bored of it. I will never cease to make my artistic visions tangible to others. I love the reaction of the viewers; if you are provoked, whether it is positive or negative, I have done my job. My art has been all around the area on the interior and exterior of businesses as seasonal decoration and murals, in the Redwood Cafe and in the Artworks Gallery in San Rafael.
