Twelve years after my diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis, I found a new lease on life, and published my first anthology. Since then, I fell in love with pastels, and started producing and selling portraits on matboards. Now, 21 years after my diagnosis, I focus on health optimization the natural way, and combat depression with creativity.
I write and publish short stories, poems, educational children's books, and conduct workshops. I also paint landscapes,seascapes, and figurative paintings in acrylic and mixed media. I am a grandmother to six boys and a lovely little girl.
