Early on in my artistic career I was introduced to the racing world of Formula 1. It was all so exhilarating, that I just had to bring pen to paper with the race cars. At first the renderings were quite photographic and exact. As a professional abstract artist, I had to find a more expressive and new way of race car interpretation; the thrill of the MOVEMENT! That would be the key to the art! Cars flying by, engines screaming, a fleeting moment of a vision…like being on the racetrack itself!
I have had curious comments about being a woman in racing and race car art. It is a male dominated field, yet I don’t focus on gender aspects. Of course there are barriers, and they are meant to be broken. Yet I love the race, and the challenge of the interpretation thereof, and ultimately sharing my race art creations with the world.
The Formula One (c) series is a fascination that began long ago with Mario Andretti, Long Beach Grand Prix and Formulas 2 and 3. It continues with today’s stars and cars.
The FIA WEC series captured my interest the moment my name was put on the side of a racecar for the Le Mans race in 2015. Read the entire story in Events and Experiences.
