To create art an artist must have courage to search and embrace the mystery that lies deeply within the notions of the real and the imagined. To create art an artist must search for the song and dance within a work of art. I believe the artist and in turn and her work become the medium in which song and dance can be transmitted. Each time I approach a blank canvas I gather up my courage and embrace that space where I allow myself to dance and sing. While my work is inspired by nature, the spirit within my work us imaginary, my imagination is my artists muse.
