Being an artist does not simply mean you are good at sketching or painting, or that you can act, sing or dance. It means succumbing to the voice in the depths of your soul and letting go all that you are without fear of rejection or ridicule. It means pushing yourself to the edge of your being and making a new path all your own. A true artist listens to what is inside and creates from within, without any constraints or limits from the outside world. I have lived many lifetimes, and embraced life in every chapter. I have lived in Egypt, Germany, Toronto, sunny Florida and now in Canada where I am living my 'settle down' series. Throughout all of my journeys however, there has been one constant - my passion for art. That magical place where you can both lose and find yourself, tell a story, read a story and feel and discover something new. Growing up on on an island has allowed the ocean to penetrate into my soul and become my compass. Much of my work is derived from the raw energy the ocean produces - the colours, the movement, the sheer power, and the magic that it brings.
