I come to visual art from the world of ballet. I was a ballet dancer for many years. I imbue my paintings with the romance and movement of the dance. I always look for the beauty, expressiveness and theatricality in life and art. My paintings have an implied story behind them, which I leave to the viewer's imagination to fill out. I use color and space to create a mood, and play up the central theme. The play of light upon the focal point emphasizes the dramatic quality of the painting.
