”I use art to record memories and stories, documenting all facets of life, from far-flung travels to the relatable every day. I am creating rough sketches at first after I am reading about the town or visiting some wonderful places. I am usually getting inspired by what I read or the feeling I have when I am in a special place. After I create the sketches, I am painting on canvas or wood with acrylic. I am mixing ink also in the acrylic to have colored fluidity. I take a lot of time with each of my pieces, work hard, and don’t rush through them. I didn’t realize how important it was to sit with your art for a while, take a step back and think about it.”
