My family has a long history of artists with some saying that there is a history of study under Cezanne in Paris.I began drawing at the tender age of 2 so I could show my parents how I felt when my sister died.
As a child I drew to express my feelings and keep in memory things I did in life. I still have many of my early drawings. all my work until recently has been a natural talent that was self taught. Like most artists, My talents were not appreciated by my teachers who said I had no talent, or my work was primitive. Like a lot of artists, my art was an expression of what I could not put in words. Today they call it “art therapy” .
The art I create mirror the life I see before me and includes beach scenes, places where I grew up, and other subjects that are deeply engrained in my thoughts. I try to represent all that I draw with dignity and respect, Thus the slogan that I use “Art with Heart”.
As any artist, my styles are ever changing, and I continue to paint the world that I see around me, or the images I get from stories I am told by those around me.
It is hoped that people may understand the world that I see from the art I am able to create.
