“You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.” -Deepak Chopra
I am a storyteller and spent most of my youth thinking I wanted to be a writer, but I found clay and detoured for about twenty years working with clay. When I switched from stoneware clay to earthenware, I started drawing on the clay. I was fascinated. I never knew I could draw. I spent about a year using clay as my canvas, but soon became frustrated with waiting on the kiln, so I began to paint on paper and wood.
In college I studied literature, French and philosophy. I did not have a chance to study art. But I’m glad and actually prefer finding my own path. I have worked hard painting nearly every day since I began. Now my hard work is starting to allow me to express some of the things I envision in my head, so I am happy in my artistic journey.
Every mark I make is a combination of all my life experiences. Each piece contains a lifetime of aesthetic experience and interest and for me, a successful piece is one that opens a heart and creates a smile. I can’t imagine not working in my studio everyday. It brings a song to my heart that maybe only I can hear, but it is my hope that others can share that song with me through my art.
My paintings can be found at various locations across the United States as well as in private collections. If you are interested in purchasing a piece, please see my gallery representation. My galleries will help you select a piece and ship to your location.
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” –Friedrich Nietzsch
