I never try to have a painting to end up a certain way - then I already would have painted it in my head. I just begin and see what happens, often
starting out in one place and ending in another, with no idea how I got there
or how to “do it again.” Painting for me is like a roller coaster - it's more fun when you don't hold on. When I look at a painting and say to myself,
“How did I ever do that?” Then I know it’s good! I am proud of myself for
having the courage to put myself on the line each and every time I paint.
Starting is the key. Then, one
color, one line will lead to another.
When asked, “What were you thinking when you were painting?” I reply, “I try not to think, that just gets in the way”.
My main inspiration is my past. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, and in my case it made me paint! The process helps me to reconnect with my own self, to heal, to grow, and to feel loved and to create my own reality.
