"Only through art can stories be captured without words"
"My work transcends the familiar to the abstract thus provoking a dialogue. .
Art is the way to embed a story in the conscience or soul of the viewer.
In my practice, I seek to examine and celebrate the journeys of life,
revealing the destiny of intricate and hidden paths, creatively converged
to convey unspoken stories".
Primarily self directed, I have an unapologetic preference, that my creativity
be uninhibited and unrestricted by structured discipline. My destiny is to create .
My faith keeps me on my journey of manifestation. The evolution of my
journey assures me that my work is on a ubiquitous path.

Her non-figurative abstracts and florals dance with texture and soft vibrant
hues often morphing from the familiar to the abstract.
