I am a 63-year old American citizen who emigrated to America in 2000, the donor of 3 nonprofit organizations: The Salvation Army, American Red Cross and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. While having a conversation in 2017, someone asked me what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I answered that I wanted to make art and become an artist even though I had never drawn or painted before. For the next seven months I dedicated myself to taking courses and studying art at the Lowe Mill, Huntsville AL. When I felt I was ready, I began painting seriously and have completed over 100 paintings to date (January 1, 2019). I paint every day and continually produce new work. I began painting representational works like landscapes and still-lifes, but have since discovered that my true love is abstracts. For me, being able to paint in such bright colors helps to make the earth a better more beautiful place. My paintings originate entirely from my soul and mind. I have many many ideas for future work and hope to continue bringing happiness and beauty to others through my art for the rest of my life.
