I am originally from Virginia. For years, my passion has been drawing and my choice medium was graphite pencil on paper. The making of abstract paintings has evolved through the study of art history and an interest in abstract patterns, colors, and designs found in nature.
Drawing, abstract art painting, creative writing, photography of nature, and art education embodies my passion as an artist. In my free time, I enjoy needlecrafts (sewing, knitting, and crocheting) and pencil portrait painting. A favorite piece of writing is the poem 'The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost. This poem has challenged me to consider carefully the roads or paths I take in life.
I thank God for the ability to draw, paint, write, and create art.
'I lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.'
Psalm 121:1-2 NIV
