Murals

I began creating murals at the end of 1994, deciding to put aside my own visions and use my skills to build a profession. I saw my own imaginary work falling into expected patterns and questioned its creative value; I seemed to know where I was going, so why go there. I also thought , almost as a joke to myself, that I wanted a downpayment for when I picked up a brush. Eventually, in 2001, as a result of three inspiring exhibits, I realized that the world of art was, in fact, my world; the people who create it and the people who appreciate were my people. And the act of creating it was my calling. So, I returned to the easel to explore my own vision, though I continued doing murals for several years.

 I must add that it was a great experience meeting people, going into their homes and creating new and imaginative spaces for them and I am glad for the time that I did. But, it was becoming clearer and clearer that I had my own path and that I  was wasting my time unless I followed it.
