Visual art comes naturally to me, as an effective way to express myself after surviving a coma and 27 surgeries. I tend to work with a lot of layering and mixed media materials - anything from tissue paper to fabric, buttons, papers, or toilet paper - whatever I found in hospitals as I recovered.   I love playing with textures, colors and shapes and allowing them to transform sadness, joy and gratitude.         Most importantly, I paint whatever I feel from the heart.  I love experimenting with acrylics, painting my world of trees, birds, flight, girls dancing, and tear drops. I found art accidentally on my way to healing physically, emotionally and spiritually and have learned that it is one of the most rewarding, forgiving, beautiful ways to find my way through the darkness and into the light.   Creativity is an essential mindset.  Painting allowed me to express things that were too painful, complicated and overwhelming for words. Good feelings overwhelmed the bad because I could control the euphoric, fantastic world portrayed on my canvases with what my subconscious chose to create.  Now, I’ve taken the lessons I’ve learned from my canvases and have applied them to every day life.  Read Less
