of Derek Jeter made at games
while he was playing
I can draw complex motion in real time -- such as -- an Athlete while he is playing.
From 1998 - 2012 I made paintings and drawings at Men's Pro Basketball
and Yankee Games. I was in the front rows at Yankee Stadium, from 2006 - 2012.
This art featured Derek Jeter,
whom I drew and painted, while he was playing.
My Art has been professionally exhibited and published in New York City,
and in Los Angeles, since my early 20s, long before I attended sports
games to paint.
Obviously, I am a Professional Artist.
I am not a sports groupie.
I am also a Straight Woman who was in a faithful marriage, from 1999 - 2011.
Derreck Alexander and I lived together at 51 First Avenue, in
the East Village, for 12 years while I was drawing and painting
at sports games. Due to crazy, jealous "talk," I have put photos
of Derreck and myself at the top of this page.
Derreck also impregnated me.
I have strong maternal instincts
and would love a son or daughter, unconditionally. That is joy.
However, unethical abuses of both of us
prevented us from having children.
Derreck, who is a talented-gifted Athlete, himself, and a
confident man, supported and trusted me, as well he should.
My personal life is conservative.
I went to games to paint and draw. Then, I went straight home.
I was drawing in real time, while the game was happening.
I did not learn this in any school.
My own visual-spatial awareness and physical coordination,
inherited from both sides of my family, enable me to do this.
These responsive drawings were made in minutes,
No time to think.
Often, I was not even looking at the paper.
In childhood, my first art form was ballet. I was considered to have the
natural coordination, balance and expression, to dance professionally. The coach,
in my small town, retired in my pre-teens.
I "feel" form and space as a Dancer, with my body.
I never watch.
