At 47 my life was in turmoil. After being diagnosed with a chronic disease, I started painting to help relieve stress and get my mind off reality. Before long I realized I realized I had talent and quickly started selling my work. Today I am a full time artist selling work from my website world wide and in galleries. The majority of what I paint is happy, and bold, and colorful. I like to make florals, landscapes and abstracts. Art changed my life.
