...It is impossible to specifically define art. Art is both rich and complex in its many forms whether visual, music, dance, drama, literature or culinary. I am inspired by dreams, nature, fascinating musical instruments, the difference between feminine and masculine anatomy, as well as man-made objects.
An admirer of the natural exuberance of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, I absorb those influences and define my style as a mix of the classical, mystical, and contemporary. I love texture, luminosity, colors, movement, purity, and serenity. I see artistic beauty in everything. Each work of art totally involves me and each has a story. It is delightful to feel the freedom to explore all details, both visible and imaginary. I am always prepared to re-create in response to an unexpected detail, and I usually reach a high-level result.
Art has the magical ability to bridge different cultures, beliefs, origins, thoughts, and ideas. A magnificent human exchange results. Furthermore, it is my belief that art has mental, physical, and emotional healing power for people creating, as well as experiencing, it.
Independent of aging, art creates a life worth living for those with emotional needs, disabilities, and cognitive decline. Everyone has the ability to express himself or herself through art, in some way. Art is poetry. Art is life...
