i draw & paint to keep me centered and create a reflection of the world from & of my own. I find nature & the arts the most fascinating! before embarking on a new artful adventure, a sense of transcendence fills my body; feeling my heart beating faster, my eyes looking softer while my breath deeper; as if my alter ego is about to emerge & stop time. I love having those sensations.
my father passed away long before I started painting. when I was little, he introduced the works of the masters of the renaissance & I remember feeling incredibly curious, challenged & completely amazed.
it has been said that my paternal ancestral blood-line hailed from the Scottish clan of military, royalty & artistic backgrounds (including close association with Macbeth) who fought in wars & entertained the wounded providing joy in their most painful of times.
I feel connected with my father and my heritage in my artistic pursuits & i will continue their legacy as I create my own for myself & the next generation to come.
