Having never really been into art when I was younger, I am what you would call an “accidental artist”. What I mean by that is through my good friend and fellow artist Lori Guarini, I met Raquel Amaral. When I went to my first art gallery show at Raquel’s I could not help but feel excitement. Talking with other artists about what inspired them, began to inspire me. At one of Raquel’s art shows, I met an artist named Cheryl Jones. The first Paint Date at Raquel Amaral’s gallery was born. I have been painting ever since.
My paintings are inspired by my dreams. When I pull out my painting supplies I already have in my mind what I want to paint and, while I am just a beginner at painting, I love how my dreams are “released” onto the canvas.
I figure that if I can take up drumming lessons two years ago, then why can’t I paint. I’ve always said I do things to the beat of my own drums.
