How did you start as an artist?  

That’s an interesting question!  I have always been an artist I just never believed that I was good enough to call myself one. The universe steps in and I reached a point where I had no choice but to let go, breathe, be brave, and not afraid to fall. I eventually was open to the fact that my purpose on the planet was to be an artist. And no matter how much I avoided it. The truth was always going to be louder in my heart than my head.    

Did you always view art as your vocation?  

Not Always! My dream was to heal the hearts on the planet. I was never quite sure how I was going to achieve such a big dream. I was a very successful hairdresser for many years and did lots of different things before and during. I avoided painting and selling my artwork, as I was always afraid of being judged.  

How would you define your art? 

I paint what is true to my Soul. Art is who I am.  And will change as I change, grow as I grow, live as I live and love as I love. I paint what comes to me and what touches my heart at the time, and I love to paint stories.
