- "You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world." (Matthew 5:14-16 The Message) I am a self-taught artist born in Houston, Texas. Creativity and artistry have been a mainstay for me, keeping me sane in an insane world. I worked for the Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice for over two decades until 2010, when I decided to transition to art full-time. I am a multi-dimensional artist who loves the challenge of a new creative venture, always curious, always learning. Pieces of my art have been published in the late Fiber Arts Magazine and in FiberArts Design Book IV. I love what I do and I do what I love and I hope to share my creative vision, insight and creative light with those who are interested.

Sometimes Words Aren't Enough
There exists an elite, sacred place in time where I've found words do not adequately express what I am experiencing. I know I am not alone in this experience. As much as words do help to define, describe and liberate the mind as much as the heart, there is a realm that lies beyond that of language as most of us understand it. I have come to know this realm through art, meditation and also through grief. In these instances, words are not needed as much as they are in day-to-day living. In this above-and-beyond spirit realm, words cease to have meaning. Just being is enough.
