I paint because I feel I have to.  It’s an urge that seems as needed as eating and sleeping.  If I’m not doing something creative, then a part of me is not living.  For me, creating is learning, growing, questioning, discovering, embracing and connecting.  Painting allows me to explore life and express visually what is felt internally.  This is my passion.  I must create to be fully alive.
