I am a self-taught artist. Although I have taken art course on a college level and hold a degree, I basically have taught myself and continue to teach myself how to paint. In spite of the fact that I been painting for nearly 22 years, I have only recently (last 4 years) allowed myself to call myself an artist or be identified as such. I paint women, stories, and nightmares; I enjoy collaging and experimenting with fabric. Art is my world.
