My love of creating started at a young age. My favorite weekend television show as a child was The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. I started painting landscapes at the age of nine. My work was displayed at school performances and publications. In high school, my self-portrait received the Silver Key and another of my portraits received the Honorable Mention award at the Scholastic’s Art Competition. Painting is my passion. I love the look in a client’s face when they see a favorite picture turned into a portrait, a treasure for years to come.
