About The Artist
I first started painting when I was only 12 years old. My first piece of art was a heart on a black surface and the heart has followed me through my work ever since.
I' ve been very attached to my paintings as they have shown a part of me, but as my walls filled and corners became unaproachable, I realised it was time for others to see my work.
I usually stand in front of an empty canvas and just start painting. What it becomes, the canvas, is often a surprise for me as well. So, it's fair to say, Abstract Expressionism is my style of painting.
Recently, I' ve discovered that paint brushes exist, so I have painted some portraits and nudes. It was fun, but nothing can match the naked hand in a pot of acrylic paint and as a Baccalaureate of Nursing, I do have gloves!
I enjoy commissions, but be aware, I will put my own twist on them!
