Let Loose

Artist Statement

I love to paint. I love how it takes me to another realm, and how it reflects my positive philosophy of being playful and a little nutsy. I love to mix water and color on resist or collage and I love the freedom to do as I please, go beyond boundaries, outta the box. I am lucky to get to follow my passion.
