Welcome to my blog about creativity.
I've learned from my most painful and joyful experiences, leading me to find my creative purpose.
My mission is to create paintings based on archetypes and narrative story. This combination of story, narrative and the mystery of archetype is something we all long for, informs our world and nourishes our creative souls.
