dagny billingham - painter
“My paintings come mostly from quick sketches I’ve done of things that evoke special feelings in me. I believe painting is a means of personal expression, so it has to be one-hundred percent original. You’re saying something. It’s a means of communication. If someone else enjoys it, then there has been communication.”
