As a child I spent countless hours coloring or playing outside, which was my preference over dolls any day. My passion for coloring hasn't died; the tools just became more sophisticated. My preference for "painting" is soft pastels, which are the same thing used in all of my street paintings. I am also an aspiring herbalist and love the many things Mother Nature has provided for us. I am planning a line of plant mandalas, much along the same line as the mandala entitled “Dandelion” in my illustration gallery, so check my website for new work!
