I draw and paint because during that time I remember and can feel the good in life, the things that I see that are beautiful, the things that I've loved, and can express them on a canvas or paper and that's my happiness. I think creating art gives one a sense of peace and a connection to something unseen that creates a wonderful energy and feeling of accomplishment.
I feel so privileged to have people from all over buy my art. It really is an amazing feeling to create something that someone wants to have and look at in their homes.
A bit about the art:
My art contains the spirit and light in me that survives even when life tries to extinguish it.
When I see what I paint it shows me that no matter what's going on in my head or in the world, in my soul there is always the remembrance of beauty and magic.
A bit of personal background:
I was born and raised in New York City. I loved in L.A. for a decade till the big quake of 94' encouraged me to leave. I then moved to Nashville.
I was accepted based on my artistic ability to the High School of Art and Design as well as the High School of Music and Art in New York. I later attended Fordham University at Lincoln Center.
I worked for Christopher (Superman) Reeve for years as his assistant. I've worked for other actors, worked in the New York Theater, for two eccentric heiresses, at Aaron Spelling Productions, as a script analyst for film companies, an extras wrangler, did bit parts in some forgettable films. I was a witness in the O.J. Simpson trial.
That's a fraction of life as I've known it. Hard to know where to begin to describe ones life, what to include and exclude.
I've lived in such a way as to make a lot of my dreams come true.
Thanks for stopping by and please do come again sometime....xoxn
