About the Artist

Do artists create reality as they see it, or does reality show the artist what to create?

I have been fascinated with abstract art since I was six years old. I was born in 1953 and I come from a stereotypical Italian family, all on my mother's side. My dad was an artist and while he taught me quite a bit, he never understood the artist in me. Skipping through life, I have been waiting for the day I could express myself. Within all this, I studied Interior/architectural design at Parson"s, NYC, NY, and studio art and art history at SUNY, Purchase, NY.

As far back as I can remember, I have always interpreted the world in an abstract manner: I knew nothing I saw and heard was all there was to the story. For me the world is a jumble of thoughts and ideas that run amok. My art reflects the idea of life and all its jumbled aspects. The titles I choose for my works are as Important to me as the work itself. I want the combination to provoke the viewers to think about their own lives and opinions; I want them to interpret what they see in their own way. And I want them to see that the best way to live life is with an open mind.

My work reflects what I feel about life and all the changes that have occurred in my life. As a young girl I have sketched many pieces, not really knowing what I was trying to express. As I learned more about life, I realized I had a lot to say. All my pieces tell my story; I started that story when I was six years old.

The abstract images I present, all have names inspiring you to look at the art, and figure out why it has that name. You might realize that quite a bit of it is political; all interconnected to each other; each telling a story. Telling your story...
