I am an attorney and was for 25 years. My days consisted of battles, one after another. After 25 years I felt like my spirit and soul were starving, while i was good at fighting and often won, my spirit was different than that. I began listening to Abraham Hicks and the Secret, and I knew that I wanted to paint. It is something I had always wanted to do. I was creative. I loved to write, loved music, and had always admired those that could create beautiful art. I began to teach myself to paint. After 3 years of learning to paint, I lost my job. I could be depressed or I could change my life. I have now immersed myself in my art and am painting some very powerful pictures. When I paint, I become lost in what I am doing. I do not hear phones ring, or anything around me, I am completely lost in what I am doing. I feel ease and it is like my spirit becomes one with the canvas. When I started painting my whole world looked different. A tree was no longer just a tree. It was colors and shapes and full of wonder. I then bought a camera and began my own photography to base my paintings from. I love the peace, the beauty, the colors of the world and my spirit soaring when I paint. It is wonderful to focus on the beauty of what is around me rather than what is wrong with the world. I am passionate, and full of love and life and spirit. I hope that in viewing my art, that is what it conveys .
