Painting, for me, is such a delight. I have always been a visual person, constantly entertaining myself with all that I see, getting lost in textures, shadows, light, color and details. With great patience, I try to capture the beauty of nature, every nuance of light and texture. My greatest thrill is that others can see the joy that I feel. My satisfaction comes, not just from selling a painting, but perfecting it to the very best of my abilities before it leaves my studio.
