~My Journey as an Artist~
For as long as I can remember I've always had a strong creative side, which I expressed by doing everything and anything when I was growing up - dance, painting, writing, acting, singing, playing musical instruments. Then towards the end of high school and when I started University, my spare time became limited and so I kept painting but the rest slipped away (except occassional guitar or flute playing - oh, does singing in the shower count?). Then around 2000/2001 my painting became more prolific, and I decided to share it with the world via the internet - with a dash of encouragement from family and online friends. I showed my works through sites like AFAE, who were and are still an awesome source of advice and inspiration, Elfwood and DeviantART, followed by a website of my very own. My website began as a portfolio, gradually evolving into what it is today. My painting has become very important to me, it comes from both deep within and all around. It is a huge part of who I am, and what I want to do in my life. I hope people visiting my humble site leave feeling inspired, thoughtful, hopeful and able to believe in magic - even if just for a moment.
Thanks for visiting!
