I began selling my pieces to raise money for human rights organizations and have now created several commissions for people all over the country. It gives me great pleasure to know that a piece of my joy is in someone else's life, and that together we have done some good for the world. Anywhere from all to a portion of my art sales go to various human rights organizations.
An opera singer by trade, I started exploring with painting when Covid hit, as a way to express myself and to connect with people to raise money for charity. My work is evolving rapidly and I employ many different painting techniques including fluid painting. I think of fluid painting as a dance between design and chance. I choose the color pallet, style, and general design of the piece, but there is an element of spontaneity and randomness that challenges me to open my mind and work with unexpected results. I discover something new every time I create a piece.
