I BECOME ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

living the moment

 

In the past, I had strived to be; I had strived to be liked; I had strived to gain admiration; I had strived to pleased and I had strived to be respected.

 

Now more matured, I no longer strive, though I haven't ceased striving but I had learned to live the moment. In my paintings, I seek a meditative and tranquil quality in the midst of a busy daily life. Simple in composition, I captured the moment in strong calligraphic brushstrokes.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST ----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Exhibiting RL artist.

 

I am an alla prima painter. I paint still life, mostly fruits but my first love is portraits. I also had painted abstracts. I do calligraphy and bring my calligraphic skills into my abstracts.

 

I started my art career back in 2009 after graduating from California State University at Sacramento in studio arts. Going back to school was a great way to keep one toe in art as my kids were growing up.

 

Since then I have been jurored into a couple of major regional art competitions and sold paintings through Etsy.com

 

I came into SL in 2009 and started exhibiting in 2010. I had showings at Pirats, Space 4 Arts, and others.
