Hi, I didn't start to paint until after I was out of school. Call me a 'late bloomer' I guess. I saw an exhibit of the painter Toulouse-Lautrec & after reading about him, I kind of identified with him. I'm the runt of my litter. At the time, I couldn't tell a Van Gogh from a Picasso, so I started to buy books on artist's lives & tried to paint like them . I love the act of painting, the smell of the paint itself. My Inspirations are too numerous to list, but here are a few of my favorities: Picasso, Francis Bacon, Julian Schnabel,& my hairless American terrier, Nica. Ciao!
