All my life, I never felt at ease within my own skin, until I was struck with cancer in 2004. Cancer gave me the strength to reveal my artwork to the world. I felt it peeled away each layer of my insecurities, and helped me become naked within.
I'm not sure how other artist feel, but my creations are very personal, and to share them with others, you become naked, you open yourself to criticism.
I have been creating art all my life, but it took cancer to give me the strength to share my artwork. I started exhibiting 2008 with the help of a friend who believed in my talents.
