Since I was eight years old, I have wanted to paint. I started art classes at 13 and never stopped. I believe each person possesses a unique response to life and that it can be expressed in many ways, one of which is Art. My creative method is to allow whatever I feel to rise to the surface and be expressed in my artwork. I watch the painting form and coalesce on the canvas. Without consciously drawing and designing, I paint in a kind of a trance. For about three years, my artwork has focused on Rubenesque women pursuing their fantasies as a part of normal life. Recently, I have begun a lot of life drawing again. I thrill to the excitement of creating, and look forward to going wherever it leads me. My painting is my personal adventure, my contribution to the world and what makes my life interesting.
