Artist's Statement

For most of my life, my world has been about fashion and modeling. I was seen and not heard. Today, my art...is my voice. With paint and brush I communicate my thoughts, hopes and fears. The reasons why I paint are simple. It makes me happy. At times it makes other people happy and how can adding more art to the world be a bad thing?
