I want to start by saying that I was extremely happy to come across this site. I"ve always felt it was important to have a network of your peers that can support you and that you can support on this journey of being a artist. My journey in the art world came about not long ago. I've always been creative, thats just a natural part of who I am. I was doing Interior Decorating 8 years ago and realized that quite a few of my clients had no idea of what type of art should be incorporated within their homes. It became a very interesting situation for me as the designer and decorator for their projects to be limited to what type of art should be incorporated within my design. As a designer you want the entire space to be your creation, or at least that was how I felt. It was then that I decided that I wanted to create art. I begin creating art for all of my clients interior designs and 2 years later my art became popular and in heavy demand , so much so, that I stopped doing Interior decorating to focus on art. From the day I picked up a paint brush and God directed my hands, I felt a passion for art that I could not explain. Many people have asked me "how do you know how to draw and how do you understand color so well"? I can only answer that question by saying "Art chose me" . I have also been asked why it is that I sometimes don't paint faces, ? I believe that facial expressions are sometimes deceiving, however, the movement of the body never lies. I now know that art is my true means of self expression and without it, I would be lost. In the short amount of time that I have been creating and selling art, I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to showcase my art in many venues ie: Hotels, spa's, boutique's and gallery showings.....just to name a few. Again that is truly a blessing. Being that I did not go to school for art, it has allowed me to approach art without fear or limitations. I am always discovering different mediums to mix that most say should not work together...I believe their are no mistakes in art just new creations and endless possibilities. I decided early on that I would create art that I loved without restrictions and if in the process others loved it, than that would be a added bonus.......Thanks for coming to my page and checking out my work!!!!!! FYI, be sure and read my blogs I have a couple of my original poetry pieces that I've written......... Peace and Blessings to all.
