“Creating artwork in the warmth of the sunshine surrounded by the vivid colors of nature and the sounds of singing birds makes me feel at peace. I love paintings that are rich with color and filled with light. Being close to the beauty and richness of the world makes me feel close to God, and this inspires me to paint.
