Painting has always been my passion, but I found it to be also a form of healing after my son's passing at the age of 25. I turned to painting, sometimes all night till dawn. His portrait, entitled "Kevin" is my best and favorite piece so far. You can find this charcoal drawing in my gallery, under "Pastels". I can say that I put my heart and soul into it, and felt so connected to him at the time I worked on it.
It took years to come to a point in life when I can do what I love to do the most. I enjoy painting, and find inspiration from so many things in life. I work in variety of mediums including watercolor, pastel, and oil. I sometimes create from what I see in my mind's eye, and sometimes my inspiration comes from a photograph. When I work with photograph, I choose what elements of the photo I want to enhance and add my touch to it This, in my opinion. brings out the best in the picture, and gives more 'life' to it.
I hope you take the time to 'stroll' through my gallery at your own pace, and come back and visit again. I would love to hear from you if you could leave your feedback. Enjoy your visit!
