A person blessed with high energy and discipline, she is always seeking adventure, knowledge and a challenge, which has rewarded her with much success as a painter.
Painting the horse has been a highlight in her career, focusing on their eyes and personality.
Her health and fitness are a priority, a good morning workout at the gym will jump start her creative juices for a long fruitful day of painting.
