I am a Dancer — who Paints. My paintings and drawings
come directly from my body, physical coordination
and visual-spatial awareness. In childhood I could draw
and paint form and space, and won mural competitions,
before I had formal art training. My first art
form was ballet. The Coach retired in my pre-teens.
My focus became painting.
The Whitney Museum of American Art ISP selected me as an Artist
without requiring the usual interview.
