100 % Disabled Army veteran with 4 boys. Self taught artist living in BattleCreek, Michigan. I have a severely Autistic son who loves to sit and work on his own creations right next to me so my painting time brings me joy with not only painting but bonding time with my son. I’ve lived all over the world with the military and have gotten to experience so many lovely cultures and people. I’m now home enjoying my retirement with my painting and working as a substitute teacher in the local school system.
