I am living proof that creativity lurks beyond the craziness of parenting little humans. I have recently enjoyed a new season of creativity and consider it a blessing to spend time painting. I am a self-taught oil painter, inspired by English coastlines. I aim to capture the power of light, both in subtle and dramatic form, as well as aspiring to grasp the expanse of sea and sky.
