I was first drawn to art at the age of fourteen looking through an encyclopedia in the paining section. Nothing interested me until I saw a painting, A Starry Night, by Vincent Van Gogh. The art spoke to me saying thoughts and feelings I felt personal. Yet he communicated these over one hundred years ago. My mother gave some pastels and newsprint and soon I filled the walls of my room with colorful illustrations. My family and friends loved them and visitors would ask to come to my room to see them. From that point on I developed a passion for making and creating art that would never leave me. Please visit my site look around and share with others..
