What is the meaning of doing art for you?
When I paint I love the feeling of play and freedom
that emerges on my canvas . I feel unfettered, as
though all the sensations inside are released on the
canvas before me. Often I have felt the sensation
of healing or escape when I am painting. I can use
whatever I am experiencing and channel it into my
art, making something strong and positive regardless
of it's origin. Each of my works is a celebration of life
and all its experiences. I believe that, when I am
creating, I am closer to that self that I want to be.
I believe in the power of imagination and that all
humans are strong creative entities. As a special
education teacher it is important to me to share that
belief, and I try to help my students find their own
inner power. I teach them that we are all responsible
for our own healing and that we are all capable of
actualizing the reality we've imagined. I feel invincible
and whole when I am in my world of art. I feel that
I am part of something beautiful and powerful and
joyous. That is why I create.
