It is entirely gratifying to see the way art touches people. I am so blessed to be able to do what I do. I get so much joy watching the heart warming expressions on the faces of customers when giving a painting to it's new owner. If they cry I often do too. Sometimes it's just me who cries. I can't imagine doing anything other than creating images that reflect a memory of a loved one, a treasured pet, a fond memory of an event or a place. It's incredibly rewarding to preserve people's joys in the form of an original artwork.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
