I became inspired and encouraged to start painting in 2019, following the completion of a creativity workshop based on the premise that if one has a long-held desire, dream or instinctive push to do something, it is most likely a nudge from the universe that needs to be explored.

Prior to that time, I had experienced great difficulty expressing myself through art. After taking the workshop, I felt the freedom and encouragement to start painting. I believe my art is an expression of those feelings of freedom, openness and fun! My medium is acrylics and I describe my art as expressive, intuitive, unique, bold, and colorful.

In some ways, I feel that I do not do the art, the art does me! I am usually quite amused and surprised by the finished painting! I know that my art work is an expression of my life experiences, desires and dreams. When thinking about the viewers of my art, I imagine them standing there, being intrigued, heads cocked to one side, thinking,” wow, what is this all about?”

As a self- taught artist, in my seventies, my wish is to inspire and encourage others to open up to their creative selves and express their gifts.
