Painting has saved me in so many ways. I came in to painting later in life. Had a desk job for 27 years and had to stop working a few years ago due to chronic pain from a couple of conditions. I picked up some paint one day to stay busy and have not been able to stop. It has become one of the best medicines for me. I have chosen the arts as a form of expression to heal. I also enjoy writing and acting which was my passion from a very young age. I do not use just one medium , I enjoy oil and acrylic as well as watercolor. Using my own photos, most times, inspire me to do something different and personal.
