I hoped this blog would be a place to share all my passions. While cooking, writing, fashion, and all things Italy are most definitely included, I wanted to start posting my paintings. When I was little, I dreamed of being a surgeon/painter/writer/ballerina. Funny where life's choices take you, and unfortunately where societal expectations force you to go. While I love the sciences, it is my runner-up love. I first fell in love with the fine arts as a competitive dancer and then with the visual arts and then the written word. Sorry science, you were actually the fourth in line. If everything had been up to me, I would have been a painter-slash-writer. I love to create, I think it is an innate need that exists in all of us. It amazes me that a blank canvas, with purposefully placed strokes of color, can become something wonderful.
