When the COVID pandemic in 2020 first occurred and forced everyone to isolate, I turned to my painting as a source of joy. My appreciation for my passion and chosen profession grew. I realized that I could recreate the places and moments of past travels and experiences that were no longer available to us through my paintings. Although I look forward to being able to once again explore new places and make new friends, I am grateful for what I have and where I have been. It’s about the journey.
