I've been creating art since I was old enough to hold a crayon!
I colored the furniture, the walls, myself - everything was my canvas - much to my mother's dismay. Lol! I had a great art teacher in high school who helped me enroll in a fine arts undergraduate program. Honestly, I doubted I could make a living as a fine artist, so I ventured into graphic design and marketing.
Life being what it is, I set aside my own creative pursuits and focused on promoting other people's products and services. I got married, got divorced. Moved a few times, always feeling like something was missing. Like many people, these past few years have led me to re-evaluate my purpose and dig deep to find my passion. That inner search led me right back to the beginning, to creating art from my heart.
I chose the name Art From the Heart because that is where my creations come from. Emotion is a powerful creative force that flows through me as I paint using intuitive and fluid techniques. What I feel is expressed through color, shape and composition. There is a balance of structure and flow, just like life!
Painting is a meditative process for me. I completely let go and immerse myself in the feelings being expressed on the canvas. My intent is to create beautiful, meaningful works of art that bring joy and happiness to others. There is something magical about having an original work of art in a room. Reproductions simply don't compare!
Thank you so much for visiting my site and viewing my work. My paintings are like children to me, each one looking to be adopted by a loving person like you! If you have any questions or would like a customized painting created just for you, I would love to hear from you.
