Why did you decide to pursue a career in the Visual Arts?
My artwork/photography has been always the guiding light in my life: my first love, my passion, my dream. Even thou I had a 'day job' (as I was a single parent). Economist by training, now a full time artist/photographer, studied also painting, sculpture, line drawing, history and perspective drawing, and in the process of acquiring Master Artist International.
When did you make that important decision?
As a art maker (long life process) I would like to inspire, to create a dialog and nurture human spirit, and ultimately to make a lasting contribution to the art society, and communities all over the world: this is a dream I always remember. My art work has been recognized nationally and internationally, and brought me to the places closer to my heart. I've been raising funds for the unprivileged children education, cancer children research, homelessness (partner since 1988), different foundations for Veterans of America, etc. I have a history of donating, volunteer, running, working financial side, working the stand with different non-profit organization such as: St. Jude Foundation, UNICEF, Make a wish Foundation, Feed the children, MS Foundation and many more. While working at Universal Studios, I've privileged to be a part of the Board of Directors.
