This is Borough Market in London with Southwark Cathedral in the background. This market is conveniently located under a rail bridge in London to shield against any rain. When I visited this market, we had a little bit of showers, but you could still see the beautiful cathedral gleaming in the background. There are a few food vendors who are situated without any shelter from the bridge above. You can still hungry market-goers standing in line for a special meal - even if it's showering outside. This piece marks a fun memory for me - the lively market with tasty treats, and a glimpse of a historic cathedral. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to go inside the cathedral - so that just means I'm going back to London again one of these days!
Most of us are captivated by beautiful imagery in our daily life: a vibrant sunset, a beautiful piece of architecture, a garden. And yet, with our busy lives, we don’t always have time to enjoy what we already have in our surroundings. I am an artist living in San Diego, painting for over 20 years. My daytime profession is in healthcare, but my artful spirit calls me to create on a regular basis. I began experimenting with oil paints as a young teen. In college I continued my endeavors with various media, and accomplished the equivalent of a Minor of Art in college. After college I pursued a graduate degree in psychology, yet still I continued painting. I have apprenticed under Tetrachromat Artist Concetta Antico in San Diego. Through her instruction, I became the oil painter and artist I am today. In spite of my day job in healthcare, I am regularly compelled to paint and share meaningful images with others in my own colorful and playful style.
