My passion is being an artist. I began drawing and painting at the early age of 3. I paint daily at least 15 minutes or more per day to maintain my discipline. I have a great interest in musicians and Icons, using vivid colors,abstract, texture, metallics and realism together to create versatility in her paintings. As an oil painter I choose to paint Icons which I affectionately call ‘ Entermusblues, Blue people’. ( Entertainers and musical blues)
