Why do I paint? Connection.
Connection to a part of myself, connection to those around me.
I believe art is an extension of oneself, an offering, a moment in time.
And, for me, art is a way of finding my way to the essence of who I am
and what my existence means to the world.
My process is a dance between the canvas, paint, and my own energy.
It is very much an intuitive process that is often steeped in emotion.
I began painting in late 2010 after a lifetime of writing.
I wasn’t a visual artist as a child; I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember.
But, when I exposed my creative side to painting,
I fell in love with the freedom of it.
It has fed a part of my soul that I didn’t even realize was hungry.
Today, the pen & paintbrush share custody and usually fight for attention.
One way or another, the art gets out.
One way or another, I continue to find my way home…
by way of sharing my heart.
I'd love to hear from you!
