Artist Statement
I am happy to introduce myself. Art is my passion, and I devoted many years to studying and practicing arts of many forms. When I moved to San Diego, my desire to paint has become even more intense. New country, new people, new surroundings, new bright and brilliant colors! I felt a consuming desire to express my new feelings and experiences in my paintings. I wanted to learn more too. As a result, I attended the Art Academy of San Diego. My art work rewarded me with new success. I have met many wonderful people at the East County Art Association; the La Jolla Art Association, and the Southwestern Artists Association of San Diego. I was encouraged and supported. I am very proud to be associated with the wonderful and talented artists of San Diego.
I have so much to share! I have so many wonderful ideas! The ability to express myself and my inner world through my paintings is priceless. My bio helps me to show who I am and how art is important to me. My strong point is abstract painting. I also like to paint animals and still life. The range of emotions is very wide; my own feelings have been transformed on the canvas. My paintings reflect my strong sense of humor, my love for life, my enthusiasm and my compassion for others. It will help me to completely express my view of the world. My soul is full of feelings and emotions; I want to learn how to successfully reflect them in my paintings. Painting is my joy. I love colors, textures, light; their combinations create endless variations of emotions and feelings. I will never stop experimenting and looking for better ways of self expression.
