Even though I grew up in circumstances where art was not particularly valued and art education was non-existent, it did not prevent me from being attracted to art and wanting to explore all its riches.
At age fifty, I decided to dedicate my time, energy, and passion to art. I registered at university with a class full of young students and threw myself entirely into the study of drawing and painting. All the effort was more than offset by the wellspring of energy and personal satisfaction that resulted.
Oil is my preferred medium. I am seduced by the forms and radiant colours of fruit. My fruit paintings are not still lifes. By emphasizing the light and respecting the shadows, I try to give them a vibrance that evokes joy, peace, and sensuousness.
I will always have a thirst to learn and perfect my art. Therein lies the passion.
