I am a former professional dancer. I danced for many years under the name "Simone DeVille" I am considered a Legend in The Burlesque Hall of Fame. My photos are in collections, including the Smithsonian. I now enjoy spending time painting, which includes the subject of dancing, in my art. I also love horses and spend my time around them, capturing them in my vision of art. I consider myself an 'outsider' artist as I have no formal schooling. I paint what I feel with conviction. I also sculpt. Metal, concrete, plaster. I write poetry. I am also in the midst of writing a novel. Please take a moment to view my art, and my photos that I am offering at this time. Thank you.
