Memories of fulfillment come to mind when I think of creating art as a child.
I remember feeling content and excited all at once, knowing that
my art had a positive effect on me. Emotions and stories are captured in my
illustrations, paintings and collages. To me, art is a reflection of people and places.
Knowing how much the act of creating art contributes to my own well-being compels me to bring this opportunity to others.
As a teaching artist, I provide creative programs for the workplace and individuals to enhance productivity and build self-awareness.
My current mixed-media art is influenced more than ever by my experiences with students and fellow artists. As Director of Mainstream
Creative, I strive to promote the therapeutic benefits of self-expression.
