My paintings represent the importance of taking a moment and just be. They remind me to savor the moments I have now and to recognize the beauty of the present.
My work encourages me to recognize the power of the present, and to be mindful of the fullness of life. While the future is an exciting prospect, my paintings remind me tocherish the present and to take a minute to just be.
