I enjoy depicting the natural environment of my native Texas. My artwork reflects my love of color and visual response to the graphic nature of organic subjects; succulents, animals, and landscapes, working in both oil and acrylic mediums as vehicles for expression. Since I was young I have felt that God created so many amazing images in nature; I strive to paint the beauty seen around me whether large or small. I have learned courage by stepping out into my art. It has taught me to take chances and to believe in myself. When I paint is when I feel truly alive and fulfilled.
