“I was always into anything art related as early as I can remember. When I was a kid I found a box of prosthetics in my grandfather’s basement. He had made ears, eyes and noses for people injured in the war. A creepy find to most kids, but I was interested. I was amazed at how he made them so realistic. From there I took every art class offered.
I like leaving my mark and making people smile. Over the years, I’ve made some beach creations out of stuff found on the sand. I would leave these for someone to stumble upon. I just want to make others happy.
When people connect to my art, that makes my heart happy. I have been blessed with a gift of seeing beautiful things in the mundane. I’m so happy that I can see these things. Whether a swirl in a puddle or a reflection in a rain drop. I like to look. I like to see things. My mind is constantly thinking of new things to do. I have so many crazy ideas circling.”
