Wear shiny sequence everyday and never let anyone take away your shine!!
When I clean my house, I turn on the tunes and dance around cleaning without a plan. If I am in one room, I will clean until something distracts me to another room and off I go into that room with no plan and tackle a space. I like to clean that way and cleaning is not a chore. For years when my dear husband came in and turned the tunes down, or commented on my craziness, it took away some of my shine. I let him do that to me.! I learned that I did not have to stop dancing just because someone told me I had to or put an obstacle in my way. I control my emotions, my reactions and my shine.
If someone is taking away your shine revisit how you are reacting. Make it a point to wear sequence everyday and shine. Even a piece of shine under your high powered suit or your car pool jogging outfit will put you in the mood to dance within.
I paint intuitively by embracing spontaneity to allow passionate paintings to be born through a transforming layering process of acrylics and inks. Each layer informs the next story of paint. In addition to layers often you will find sand, coffee, glass beads or perhaps even a gum wrapper invoking the question of what story is being revealed. I paint what I feel, how I feel, and each found object in my art continues that story. It is my hope that you find a connection to my work and might, if only for a moment, become captivated and feel something within yourself. The art I create are visual expressions of my inner soul, spirit and passion. Once a corporate entrepreneur trapped inside a suit and wearing heels, the desire to put my feelings, thoughts, and emotions on canvas became too powerful. The life-changing event that turned the corporate pen into a paintbrush was the dark world of Alzheimer’s that struck my mother. I could not wait any longer to paint in the event that world captured me as well. Leaving the boardroom behind, what has emerged is a new language expressed on canvas. This language expresses the freedom and unbound passion to create and let my art direct itself without fear or influences that has previously stifled my intuitive style.
Constantly moving around the world, staying in one place no longer than three years at one time, living in the back of a musician’s studio, provided the opportunity to meet vast numbers of different people from all walks of life.
These experiences set the canvas for the style of abstracts I paint because I find these people, locations, and experiences are represented in each painting in some way.
