I do not create art pieces to sell. I create them because I can and because I love doing it. Many people have said to me, "That piece speaks to me in a particular way. I would love to have this in my home". When they say that, I am happy to sell it because I know they will take from it all the joy and care I have put into it, that they will share it with their friends and family, and that something I have accomplished will live on for ages to come.
I've been a ballerina since I was seven years old. I have trained mostly in Russian Vaganova style. This type of ballet although it is very strenuous and technically challenging, it's meant to look fluid and effortless. These qualities translate into the way that I paint. My work emphasizes the tensions implicit in combining the human mind and the world it perceives. What is underneath the surface is how I see the world. I want to make visible what is invisible. I intend to narrate my feelings and thoughts through painting.
