How long have you been creating?
I was aware that I wanted to paint when I was four years old. My Mom was doing a portrait of me in watercolors and when I checked it out to see if it looked like me I remember thinking that I wanted to do that and I had the audacity to think that at 4 I could do it better than my artist Mother. Because my Mom always encouraged me by first grade I was constantly drawing and painting. So I suppose that the creative germ has been in my brain for about 60 years!! Yes I am as old as dirt!!!
What, besides your art, brings you creative fulfillment?
I would have to say that my garden is a great source for inspiration and fulfillment. Just like my paintings my garden is crammed with detail. I keep meaning to have a sign made TOO MUCH IS NEVER ENOUGH.
What are your motivations for creating?
I honestly don’t know how or what is the root of my motivation for creating…it is some inner drive. Maybe with all of the artists in my family it is something in our gene pool.My Mom besides being a painter and sculpture also sang Opera,my Dad sang Opera, I have cousins who are artists, an aunt and uncle who are artists,my Husband who is an artist,my Daughter who is a ballerina and now an artist. Plus a cousin who runs a successful gallery in Philadelphia and of course also is and is married to an artist.
