My interest in setting up a website to sell my artwork came about as the result of the passion that I have had for art and interior design since I was a child. My kindergarten teacher told my Mom that I was drawing and coloring flowers on people's hats and buttons on their coats during art. That statement seemed to indicate that I had a future as an artist. I have a large collection of interior design books and magazines, and books about the master painters, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Sisley and Pissarro. These artists have always inspired me, as well as many others. An inspiration for a painting can happen anywhere from something that I see, or from the endless patterns found in nature. I am always on the lookout for ideas for my paintings, and I love to experiment with paint and brush to see what exciting things will happen. Faith in God, as well as encouragement from family and friends, along with a passionate pursuit have brought me to the place that I am at today.
