NOT UNTIL RECENTLY DID I FINALLY RECEIVE MY BOX OF 64 CRAYOLA CRAYONS.
Not until 2001 did I give a notion to painting. I never thought I had it in me.
I love the saying, “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.” There could be no truer words. My art teacher, mentor, and dear friend, Gloria Adams, gave me the confidence to believe in my ideas and my paint stroke.
It’s a dream come true to have my works of art finding homes all around the world. My Gorgeous Chubbies series garners particular interest. Could it be it’s because they’re nude? Like most of my artwork, this collection explores the inherent worth of all human beings—whatever their shape, history, or passion.
My newest learning curve has been the art of “throwing.” It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe, but let me try: FREEDOM. There’s no perfection, just an eye for color and space—layering paint upon paint and throwing in any other type of material you desire.
Let me teach you.
