I have always loved nature, being creative & inspiring others. However there was a time when I thought I'd never be able to do anything, including my art.

As newly weds my husband & I moved to Eugene Oregon to further our education. My focus at 23 was in the fashion industry / modeling & raising our 2 daughters.

This became extremely hard to do though after a severe fall/head injury that caused constant headaches, pain, dizziness, and nausea. I couldn't remember simple things. It was frightening!

After 67 doctors appointments, x rays, MRI's etc., I was diagnosed with brain tumors, fibromyalgia, and nerve damage. I was told I would not live that long or I would be totally crippled before I turned 35. Surgery was not an option. I had a great team of doctors. They experimented with different treatments, nothing worked. I felt like an experiment gone wrong.

It really didn't hit me how sick I was until an insurance agent told me they could not insure me, because I may not wake up tomorrow. My immediate thought: no one knows how long they have. (For with God all things are possible. Only He knows how long I have.) I needed a change. I already ate healthy, exercised daily, but I needed to get away from the stress. We needed a fresh start, so we moved to the mountains of North Idaho & built our dream home.

Being surrounded by nature wasn't only therapeutic, but it inspired me to be creative. With the encouragement of my husband & a few friends, I decided to pursue something that I always enjoyed, made money with and was good at. That of course was art. I've actually sold art since I was 14 & I've taught it both in public schools and privately. Of course when I decided to do this I got a lot of comments like "get a real job", " you'll just be a starving artist", "you're not good enough", or "you don't have an art degree". I chose to ignore these negative comments. Instead I looked at it this way: I have been blessed with a wonderful gift that reflects my inspirations & creativeness. Yes, I was going to do something I enjoyed!

Being creative & working on my art has always been therapeutic for me. Sure, I still have constant headaches, can't get life insurance, but I get to create Art surrounded by nature.

I get to enhance peoples lives through the creation of beautiful art, that causes them to reflect, imagine, and be inspired.
