I began to paint and create mixed-media work in 2010. My journey began when I visited Paris, France, for the very first time. I had an argument with "someone" at Le Louvre. My claim in being an artist was in question. The root of my anger stems from the fact that being an 'artist' is not because of what I do but it is because of who I am. This argument pressed my reset button and the rest as they say is history. I married my critic at Le Louvre and blew wide-open the double doors into my creative vault.
