As a youth I broke many bones. As a young adult I fractured my mind. What followed has been a life filled with the highest of highs and the lowest lows.
I entered treatment and was medicated and started therapy .Nothing helped and I got worse. Like so many in my situation I continually sabotaged myself. I have always been an artist but what art I created was dark and disturbing. It was definitely not conducive to healing. I abandoned my art.
Several of my therapists encouraged me to journal but I found it difficult to write. Out of frustration I began to journal with art. I found that I could work out issues with pictures. As I progressed the art became colorful. I started to look for the positive in my life. My sense of humor began to come out. Before this my sister used to say '' Who would want to hang that on their walls'' Now I can say that anyone can share my vision of happiness.
I can truly say that art heals. I have chosen not to be a victim. I am a survivor. I am bigger than my monsters.
I had spent most of my life waiting for happiness to find me.. Now I realize I had it within myself all along.
My subject is whimsey. My subject is color. My subject is nostalgia. These are the common threads that run through my art. I like to tell stories and share them with the viewer. You can accept my story or make up your own. Everyone has their own struggles, but they also have the same right to rise above. I have been lucky, I don't have everything I want but I have everything I need. And the one thing that I want and need is my art, And my art makes me whole.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I draw my inspiration from my Childhood. I love horses and rabbits. I love cats and dogs. I loved toys and the imaginary worlds that they gave me entrance to. I paint what makes me happy.
I paint with both oils and acrylics. I first started painting in oils at age nine. Sometimes I can't wait and acrylics come to the rescue. I also love to draw. In college I studied printmaking and black and white photography. Although most of my painting is all about color, I still love black and white. I am also a sculptor for the last eight or nine years and I am mostly self taught.
For most of my life my art has been hidden away. In the last few years I have begun to exhibit my art. However, my highlights are when I have had the chance to tell my story and encourage anyone, be they child or adult, to create their own works of happiness.
