Comments from the public:
“A riot of colors.”
“An exquisite artist. Bravo.”
“I want to understand how she does it, but can’t.”
“Your art touched my soul. It brought back a flood of memories.”
“I bought “Crystal” and hung it up over my fireplace.”
Irina Simeonova, Assistant Professor, Parsons: Fashion, Art and Design School, New York: “Your colors remind me of Chagal. What you create comes from the soul. Also, your art reminds me of the well-known Austrian-born painter, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, because it is romantic, honest and pure.”
Susan Herrel, The News-Gazette: “The small pictures are dreamlike, moody, surreal, full of movement and interesting textures and shapes.”
In the artist’s own words:
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with more primitive communications media: markers, pencils and crayons. Quite frankly, I surprised myself! My inspiration came from the new craze, adult coloring books, and I decided to pour out my heart on paper.
At first, it was scary because I have no art training. My elementary school teacher told me that I would be a failure in art and that I shouldn’t even bother trying.
After many years, I did, though. First with digital art and now with markers, pencils and crayons!
When I feel ready, I will share my new creations with you.
