I am still learning every time I paint, making mistakes here and there, finding new technique that I have never known before. I have not reached the level where I want to be. I know it will be a long process getting there, but I am enjoying every minute of it!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy my artworks as much I enjoy painting them.
