Art should be FUN! Art should be THERAPUTIC! Art should be THIS! All of my favorite memories of my childhood revolve around getting out paints and supplies and creating. When the world starts to spin a little and my brain is going nuts, I pour a glass of something and paint. When I'm painting the rest of the world melts away, and I get a warm fuzzy feeling in the heart of my soul. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and I am THRILLED that I get to share this experience with all of you.
