My world of painting is magical for me…I try to paint on a daily basis…it’s therapy, positive energy and exhilarating. Each day life can be planned yet it is always full of surprises…In the art world…I have a goal…a focus…and that is to be accepted in the museum of Los Angeles.  I have my fingers crossed that I will pass their tests.

When I paint, I’m making a mental investment to create works of art that challenge my inner most passions.  This process involves many redo’s…Every painting is a learning tool. My work is definitely intuitive. If I plan a painting it rarely works out, yet if I just let loose and let the paint flow I then can get excited about what I see and then go for it.

I’ve had strong mentors.  Gemma Taccogna, whom studied under Marc Chagall, Diego Rivera and Hans Hoffman was a wonderful teacher and influence.
She encouraged me and gave me tools that I use daily.  She lived in the era of Picasso where art was developed to reach the subconscious.  This therapy became my foundation and guide.

Life has been a very bumpy road for me, yet all of the influences, teachings and styles have made me the artist I am today.

Freda Kahlo wrote,” 
“How Beautiful Life Is When It Gives Us Riches” 
“Que bonita es la vida, cuando nos da de sus riquezas“

Freda’s life was anything but calm and easy yet she was able to turn her agony into beauty. My goal is to see life for what it is and then to make the best of it.

My art school interests began in Denver, Colorado at Colorado Woman’s College; Los Angeles’ USC, Dominguez and Otis College.
