'I love painting the Still Life in oil, it has the peace and quiet that I crave. I spend hours sometimes days setting up the objects a certain way. The way the light falls on them tells a story..
I love soft and hard edges the illusion of form on a flat surface. I enjoy learning more each time I paint. The more I learn the more I know and knowing makes me realize I need to keep learning. Painting is exhilarating, challenging and to me personally revealing. It has given me a new view on life and experiences beyond my imagination.'
