There is a creative energy that manifests itself in several forms...... We all have a need for Expression and Acceptance
I have always, since a very young age, expressed my feelings through my art. It helped me find a way to communicate in my world
At the age of 12, I first painted with HenryTraguba at his studio in New York where I fell in love with oil painting. I went to the H.S. of Music & Art in NYC and painted at the National Academy of Fine Art. I am basically a self taught artist, expressing myself the best way I know how.
I paint in oils because I love the blending and manipulation of texture and color. The oil can appear as vibrant as acrylic or as translucent as watercolor. It's a very versitile media.
I am not a representational artist. I am moved by the spirit of my subject and approach it in a more impressionistic style.
