Working on "Time is ticking, save your soul". Mixed media/ assemblage.
I have been a compulsive creator of art since I was a little girl. I started by making sand candles and purses as a young child and sold them to a few stores in my town. Later in my early teens years, I studied ballet. During all the time spent in between rehearsals, all the girls would knit. I also learned to quilt at that time. Our ballet instructor, who came from Russia, taught us how to make ballet costumes and headpieces. I also choreographed ballets and taught ballet. After I stopped dancing, I needed to fill that creative void. I taught myself how to paint faux finishes. I also created beadwork for clothes. While my children were babies and I stayed home, I began to make jewelry and sold them to stores and to special customers. While visiting Barcelona, Spain one year, I was in awe with the works of Antoni Gaudi. I loved the vibrancy of all the colors in mosaics. That was my new passion in the 90's! I began reading everything on how to make mosaic structures with cement.
Fast forward to 2014, when we moved to La Quinta, California. I finally had an art studio where I could create 24/7! I branched out from just using mosaics to adding mixed media... And one thing lead to another. Now I use metal, canvas, wood, plastic, paint and just about anything I find to create mixed media, assemblage art ,painting and now jewelry. I am a self taught artist, doing what I love to do. Creating unique art stories with a theme. I do not limit my work to one style because I would become too bored. I like to mix-up my art up to keep myself interested. I welcome commissioned work. Please contact me to develop a perfect piece of art that says this piece of art is YOURS!
