Dance is my natural art form. When I was a toddler, on stage in a performance, my athletic coordination was noticed. I was put in a ballet class
taught by a Dancer from The National Ballet who lived in York, PA. That coach wanted me to dance professionally
and put me on point at a young age. She also had my parents install a barre in our home. She suddenly retired in my pre-teens.
I became a Painter. I draw and paint
from my balletic athleticism and proprioception — not only with vision. I drew my point shoes in my pre-teens — before I had visual art training.
These are iPhone pics, no retouching. The phone camera made me look 10 pounds heavier than I am, and also widened the actual drawing. I am an Extra Small.
