Dreams and visions swim up before my eyes but I can never paint them, they all end up looking like cartoons. So I leave them to the writers, the poets and the visionaries, and go back to the earthy, watery world outside me, whose beauty says without words all I need to say. If I can get that, if I can make it move on the canvas, capture it in my mind and unravel it through my fingertips,and if I can be satisfied, I know someone else will be moved by it, will love it. That's really my heart's desire... I've been drawing I could hold a pencil, and painting since I was nine or ten, when I found my dad's old paints and palette in the basement. I'm self taught, though I credit my dad with passing on the artistic gene, and my grandmother with teaching me how to draw horses. Please contact the artist for prices. She is also available for commissioned works, and prints of various works are available upon request.
