I consider myself self taught fine artist. Although I did go to an art school in NYC, however my major was not in fine art, but in fashion design. My career as a designer was hectic and wonderful. Working full time made it difficult to find time to pursue my own creative interests. After years of working for others I made the decision to take a leap and focus more time on my own art endeavors. Which just means juggling between freelance gigs and finding time to work on my own artwork. The good days are when I can tune everything out and enjoy creating.
A few Quotes from Creative minds that I can relate to:
"Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it" - Salvador Dali
"The purpose of Art is washing the dust from daily life off our souls" - Pablo Picasso
“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.” - Georgia O’Keeffe
2022- My site is currently a work in progress.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy what you see.
My goal for this site is to share my work and eventually share tips on creating.
