    That's the Plan

    If i want to get away from the world i draw or paint. When i paint i am free from worries and stress. I cant paint and think of anything much more than my painting. So if i am stressed and suffering the best thing i can do is pick up my paintbrush and get to work. Art is like...

    I'm going to take an intimate picture of my

    husband & then do a photo manipulation making it abstract & hang it over our bed. Only we (& you) will know what's underneath :)

    My Art

    I find creating art is a way to express who I am and what I am feeling at the time. So often, it is not about the finished product or composition... but the process of creating its self.

    Im Not That Good But Its Been Good To Me

    I've always loved art.  As a kid i loved coloring and drawing.  I just recently realized how therapeutic it really was for me growing up.  It still is its helped me build confidence as well as a sense of self.

    When I paint, the colors just flows

    and my hand moves across the canvas like there's nothing else that matters. It's like I have another life in the painting, like this world is a dream and the painting is reality. I want my life to be in a painting so I could lose myself in what I love.

    Drawing Ideas On Paper And Bringing It To Life

    Whenever I have a certain idea that I want to draw, I would sometimes write it down on a piece of paper(if I don't have a sketchpad with me) or draw it out by making a rough sketch. Sometimes I would make changes later on and then make a pencil sketch out of it. Depending on...

    The Snow Fall.

    The Snow Fall.           Snowflakes fall with a whispering sigh thru a lacework of  branches woven across a slate grey sky.   Like fragments of unfinished poetry tickling on the edge of consciousness.   Some  falling to a...

    The best part for me is each art piece creates

    itself. I'm just the vessel through which the art comes to fruition. I never know exactly where I'm going with something in the beginning. I just start and each stroke of the brush or line on the pen leads to the next idea...the next color,ect. I'm always surprised & enchanted...
