Visual Art – Phoenix, AZ

I realized at a young age I could think whatever I wanted and paint it not say it. There is a freedom that painting brings out in me, it is the most honest I know how to be with myself and others. I am an artist who loves to express herself on canvas with perplexing images and a story. I invite the viewer to take a look and try to figure out what the imagery in the painting represents. Music has always created visuals in my mind, it is at the heart of my work, the beat, the words, the notes. It picks the colors and the textures that start the pieces and keeps the paint flowing to the end. Living in other countries and showing my work internationally brings a worldly perspective to my art, I enjoy giving back to the local community, and have done a few live paintings to benefit charities such as, The American Heart Association and Children’s Cancer Network. “My work signifies love, lust, passion, loneliness, fear, movement, texture. All descriptive and all fit what represents me.” The paint I put out, the brush I pick up. . . it’s a process that defines me and makes me have the inner calm I seek. I have a gift for effecting people visually and in my life I have sought to become better at that. I know I will always strive towards growth and understanding. • Creating since birth • Painting since 1993 • Self taught, traveled and lived in many places that included Italy, New Zealand, New York and Chicago while mastering my talent and learning my technique. • 2017 Live painting to benefit American Heart Association, painting auctioned for charity. • 2017 Represented by Gallery Andrea 7019 E.
