About the Artist
I do what I do because I love nothing more than to create art. Art has always provided me an escape – a space where I can recharge. Although it requires concentration, it is relaxes me in a way that nothing else can.
I’ve dabbled in many mediums, but most of my work is either acrylic paintings or fine art gourds. I painted for over 10 years and began to develop “artist’s block”, so I began working with gourds. I found I love working in three dimensions, and the variety of gourd shapes is an endless source of inspiration for me. I paint images that inspire me or intrigue me and most recently I have been working on a series of paintings inspired from famous poetry.
