I suffered a stroke, survived and flourished.

My art career took a big turn in 2016 when I suffered a stroke that affected my eyesight and balance and made me fearful of falling. Overnight my world changed and I didn't know what the long-term consequences would be, but I knew I wanted to continue painting.

I adapted to these new circumstances by doing extensive physical, occupational and cognitive therapy. I have survived and flourished and have an increased appreciation of my blessings and increased awareness of everything. I am excited about my recent work and am very happy to be back in my studio.
