Artist’s Statement:

Bent wood boxes, weaving, water colours; if it was an art form I tried it
 … then came acrylics.

I have been collecting and selling art and working with artists most of my adult life
 … then came acrylics.

I have called dance and desktop design my art form
 … then came acrylics.

I started painting in November 2011 and I love everything about it, including the frustration of “not knowing” what to do or where the piece is going.

… I love acrylics!
