"I am so in love with painting. If you look at my work, I think I it's obvious how happy it makes me.
One of the greatest compliments I get is that my work also makes other people also feel that way too.
I have always been creative and done creative things both as a hobby and a profession.
Painting however, started late in life.
When I was 47 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes...odd for a person my age. For some reason, that really kicked my creativity into gear and I started painting, teaching myself, in my garage.
Before long I was making a living as a full time artist. Now I teach classes and have regularly had work in big city galleries."
