I started painting in the summer of 2003. I have been a prolific artist. I describe my style of painting as 'modern fusion'. I discovered the concept of making patterns out of my art in December 2008. Almost every painting that I have created makes a useable pattern. The uses for my patterns are almost endless; think textiles for clothing, upholstery, bed linens, scarves and neckties, as well as wrapping paper, shower curtains, wall paper, and more.
