I took an online painting class and started painting two years ago with my teacher, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. She made painting such an inviting and wonderful journey and because it was online it was an easy way to try and I was amazed that I could actually paint.
Art informs and transforms and I had no idea how much until I started painting. I am amazed at the paintings that come through the canvas and it is therapeutic healing work. Art is about so much more than paint on a canvas.
On March 4, 2013 Shiloh Sophia McCloud gave a talk at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and featured a slide show of 42 of her student's paintings and we each had three of our paintings featured. Images talk to the heart and the soul and they can bring healing and change to lives.
I paint women ... madonnas, uppity women, humble women, loving women, abstract women, all kinds of women, and donít think I will ever paint anything else. The face of woman is eternal and ever changing and it is what I love to paint.
