"Painting is a happy and creative time for me and is a form
of mental relaxation and imagination. Each canvas is the labor of
creativity, and so in a general way I do not like to copy and paint
in the realistic styles, which to me are more like reproductions.
I have explored many mediums: clothes design, sewing, interior furnishings,
pottery, jewelry making, and even weaving ... and watercolor because
I had to learn that for my undergraduate interior design degree. In
2001 I took a painting class, and I have enjoyed painting ever since."
