I’ve always had a love for art…ALWAYS! The earliest memory I have of my love for it is waking up early in the morning when it was still dark out & watching a curious man paint “Happy Trees” & the trying to recreate them. When the show was over I would move into our kitchen, open up my pint-sized water color box & begin painting the early morning sunrise. Every day was a new, beautiful creation & I was in awe of the colors that appeared! To say that art has been a constant for me when everything else was chaos is an understatement. I often found myself using it as an escape while growing up.
