My Story

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 artworkThe 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.
