"Art is a universal language that cuts across every racial, cultural, social, educational and economic barrier. It bridges the gap between dreaming of what is possible and achieving it. Art transforms lives, transcends change and injects beauty into communities. Art brings the world together."

My current work, started off as an animal shelter series. For every animal that got adopted locally, we painted a pet portrait as a thank you to the new families. Before we knew it, families all across the US began to ask for pet portraits, and I decided to continue to paint them, and give 100% of the commissions to Creatives Unite. We have raised over $1,000 in pet portraits alone, and were able to successfully complete the entire wish list for one of our advocacy centers we sponsor this past holiday season!
