Moving forward with determination. Leaving the past behind.

Inspired by a particular stage of my life. I always say I could tell my story with a pear, a wine glass, a blade of grass or even a flower, but I will never deny the fact that the female form is the most beautiful thing on this fine planet and I could draw it everyday until my days went dark with a smile on my face.  

This piece won an award of excellence at the Federation of Canadian Artists Human Figure Show in 2011.
