Italy. My first trip was in 1972, it changed my life forever! There to study painting and art history through a college program, I had my first glimpse of the duomo ...the sights and sounds of Florence… and art! Art from centuries and centuries of history. I was in love!
It seemed there were even colors I had not seen before! There is so much power in color, it has the ability to bring joy, rest, emotion, even healing. Color is a divine gift. it has driven me through this artistic journey all of these years. I can not remember a time in my life when I was not moved by beautiful color. I will forever be grateful for that first view of Firenze ...and for the time I have been able to study and visit there through the years.
