As you may know, my paintings are all about color. At nine years old, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and I was learning in a totally different way than the “norm”. I learned by sight, smell and sound. Do not give me a book, I have learned, give me a paint brush and let me express myself. I consider my “Dickslexia” as I always thought was all my own, as a gift and talent. Expose the eyes to an object and let the brain lead you to create what you see, smell and feel. The smell of oil paint is drug for me and painting may be my best form of relaxation. I have never cared what anyone thinks of my works, as long as it makes me happy.
