A little HERSTORY...
"I am a mother of two amazing people. I consider my children the most special gifts
from God and the MOST important and greatest thing in my life. My daughter and son have changed
me in a way I could never describe in words, only that they have made me a better me.
Since they were born my paintings are consumed with feelings for them - I can never seem to fully
convey my love for them with paint - my emotions overflow and are often too overwhelming - these
two little people are my heart.
My ability to paint is natural, a simple gift. So I pass on what I can to beginning artists, teach
when needed, and contribute my work to just about any charitiy that helps, schools, women and children, disabled, and
My life has been strengthened and empowered by painful events of loss and tragedy. I've
had cancer and recovered, I have become my own champion over violent and emotional abuse and found
Depression was a monster I fought and have learned to win by grieving, letting go of regret, finding
a healing light inside that I hang on to through - prayer, bonding with other women, loving acts, loving me, exercise, painting
and writing, but mostly just being a kid sometimes!
Jesus has loved me since I was a very young girl and filled me with forgiveness and understanding,
hopes, dreams, a true desire to help others, and they are the emotions that drive me everyday.
"Life has given me LEMONADE - I'm thirsty and intend to drink every drop of it and
then suck on the ICE!" SIDRA
