My story, like everyone's, is complicated and complex with some hidden feelings, some feelings expressed. Our universal struggles with sadness, loneliness, fear and joy, happiness, and contentment manifest in my art. The thread of melancholy in my life is revealed in my work. I hold deeply felt emotions around the suffering of humans and our fellow travelers, the animals. Equally felt is the great joy and happiness I take from all the beautiful events in each day of my life. When I work from memory, not a model, I can suggest a mood or feeling without constraints. From my early training as a classical dancer to use subtle nuances of posture and angles to create a mood as well as my art travels through Europe and Africa, I have developed my present technique to express our internal passions and contemplations.
