in the life of an artist. That's when I take a break from my pastels and play with dolls. Such good memories but also creative and I must say, I'm being so green! Nothing like recycling long-forgotten dollies. This piece, "Then and Now?", owned by a private collector, has a petit pastel as the stomach, baby's body parts and hand-sewn clothing.
AS A LITTLE GIRL
from Painesville, Ohio, I always dreamt of becoming an artist. Somehow along the way I stopped and became a belly dancer. Yes that's right - a belly dancer. Sure was a crook in the road, but what an unforgetable experience!
I'm back on the road and painting away. I have a love for pastels with their vibrant colors and the way of manipulating the sticks, gives a feel of sculpting paintings.
