My art is as deep as my heart ever digging and looking to understand love of myself, my life and those that influence me everyday. The feelings flow through me and onto the canvas. I am continuing to evolve as an artist and looking to expand my abstract to interactive and performance art as well. I have had a lot of life transitions in the last three years and my body of work represents the light even though there has been a lot of pain. There is a balance between the darkness and the light in which I feel is necessary to accept even though it’s still difficult. I draw great inspiration from this vast universe like the galaxy, water, trees, sky scapes, eyes, and aura colors. Music is my fuel to paint and it helps me to relax and be at one with my canvas and connect to my vision and let all the goodness flow through me. All of my exhibits feature my biggest support, my husband, Ricky Spanish, who DJs all of her events.
