ARTIST STATEMENT


Born to missionary parents in the Himalayan mountains bordering Napal and North India and growing up in East Africa, different cultures, languages and lifestyles have been a life from influence on my life. At the age of 10, after completing a detailed sketch, in church, of a bullfight, my mother bought me some oil paints. My first painting, a lion and Mount Kilimanjaro, on on Masonite board, won a art contest in Dar es Salam East Africa. Art quickly became my favorite subject, and I took classes at every opportunity. After graduating from high school, I received scholarships for art and nursing. I attended Drury and SMSU universities in Springfield Mo.

Today art continues to be my passion. I engage it to express my joy in celebrating God's diverse creation. Using light and color, I hope to entice and capture the attention of my viewers into experiencing what a wonderful marvelous world God has created. I take pride in working proficiently in a variety of art medias.
