Art, among many things, runs through my veins. My family is full of professionally trained artists in diverse media and materials and I have been creating my whole life as well, but academically I chose the life of a humanitarian. In my late 30s, as my health needed some attention, I returned to art while I recuperated and I have yet to look back.
For an impatient artist like me, acrylics are wonderful and they are just as colorful and brilliant as oils. Watercolors are my second choice and with both media I choose abstract. I like the freedom of the unknown, and my hands seem to take charge over mind in this process. Street and Documentary Photography is also a passion, particularly of children. The innocence in their eyes, the spirit of their souls...I feel best when I can capture those elements in my photos.
