My artistic growth is manifesting not just because I paint regularly, but because it is my destiny.  There was a plan already set in motion for me before I was even aware of it. When I was 23, I sat and stared at a painting on my wall. My boyfriend at the time pointed out that I was no where near that talented, and suggested that I give up. Supportive, huh? Ten years later the artist that painted the piece is my friend, and he's telling me how talented I am! It brings tears to my eyes sometimes to think about how life comes full circle.

My art is meaningful, it comes from the heart. It is pure and authentic. I realize that many artists are inspired by one another, and I have been inspired by many, but there is a big difference between inspiration and imitation. I think we all have to find a way to be true to ourselves in our work. Copying someones work says a lot about who you are and where you are. Just be inspired. Be inspired to be better at doing you!
