I paint my way through challenges. Sometimes its in my journal, other times its on canvas. Its how I get it out, work it through. But I'm able to do it by turning the challenge around, affirming it in a positive light and how I see things changing. These personal struggles have made my art richer. They are the fuel for my inspiration. There is depth + meaning, shadow + light, strength + weakness. Its what makes my art real.
The painting becomes part of the solution. Affirming a new state of being.
This is part of how I communicate. with myself and the outer world. And this is how I am in the artsy world.I'm stepping into who I truly am. As a person and as an artsit. No apologies.
Take no prisoners, make No apologies for what I create.
After being told a couple of years ago, by an art critic who writes for the local paper to stop painting 'those silly girl faces' its been a been a challenge to flick that off and put them out there again. But its time for me to stand firm in the truth of who I am.
