I am a self taught painter, with a passion for colors, blurred lines, and organized chaos. I have nerve damage in my dominate arm which make it so I cannot hold a pencil "correctly." As a result my penmanship suffers, my art teacher in middle school discouraged me from pursing art because I was not naturally good at drawing. My art teacher in high school re inspired me but it was not until college that I really discovered which medium was right for me. What I love about abstract expressionism and Impressionism paintings is that it not trying to be an exact photo of the world, the thing that I failed so terribly at, it has a passion and depth about it.
