As long as I can remember I was playing with color. I always dreamed of being an professional artist - and that dream came true when I answered a 2 line ad in the New York Times - it turned out to be an ad for an artist trainee at Walt Disney Studios. Now at age 56 I realize that being an artist is more than being paid for your work. I love holding a brush - it gives me such a "high" and I feel connected in every sense.
I have worked with a computer for the last ten years and have really enjoyed it but I get the most from actually painting with acrylics on canvas.
The whimsical side of life, children and animals are my inspiration both in my paintiings and photographs.
