Yes, I am one of "those" artists who spent her life chasing a reality that others laid out for her - and stumbled and faltered along the way; from daydreaming of being true to her heart. No longer able to sludge through others expectations; I have come home to my box of crayons.
I paint to breathe, to live, to love. I am primarily a self-taught artist; having completed some drawing courses in college. I emmerse myself with creativity; and am continually learning through online courses, blogs, and books. I am awed by color theory. My favorite book so far is Dynasty of Light followed by Alla Prima.
I have been controlled by the forces of creativity since I was a very young girl. I would talk and sing to the birds, butterflies, bugs, rocks, trees, grass; and everything in my world - or try to create them with my crayons.
I am still that girl.
