Everyone of us has their own special story to tell others. Here is mine:
I really started out wanting to be a Surgical (Baptist missionary) Nurse. While a student at the hospital in 1977-8 they were having an epidemic. I came down with three fatal diseases from the operating room and a fourth fatal disease while being a patient at another hospital. Five dr.s gave me no hope to survive. God healed me in 79'. Praise God for His mercy. I have been in excellent health ever since.
Owned an antique business, did probates, appraised, lectured, restored laces and linens.
Graduated from an accredited law school as a Paralegal/Legal Assistant. Could have pursued becoming a lawyer as I took all ten fields of law (more than a Paralegal/Legal Assistant degree even requires) but I soon realized I needed more in my life. Even my boss's stated I knew more than they did and they felt intimidated by me as most only take two fields of law whatever they specialize in.
Free-lance Paralegal Services
Found that Law was not enough of a personal challenge for me as it came much too easy.
I taught a year as a substitute teacher and a Para-Professional substitute teacher in the public school system.
Ran for City Council
Ran for Mayor
After much prayer I felt led to pursue my love for art where I feel the most challenged with the talent I have been blessed with.
As far as my art talent it comes from the Lord. If you like what I paint, please take the time to thank HIM.
My parents were both what they now call "Tiger Parents" and I am very glad they are. Both are very talented my Dad was an inventor and had been written up in The Inventor’s Gazette along with my Mom. Mom is a professional artist as well and a great inspiration to me as was my Dad. My knowledge of art was taught to me and from my own research. Learning exactly how to paint was learned by watching my Mom (a real Master in her own right) at her side for literally decades and from my own research of the Old Master's works.
Since my Dad has passed away my greatest critics and supporters are now my Mom and husband. One could not ask for any better parents or husband.
I was raised by old-fashioned good Christian parents who taught us to always put God first in your life, and dream big, bigger than you ever thought was possible. Then however you land in life you will be successful. One could not find any better parents and role models.
Having learned to paint by watching my Mom literally at her side seemingly all of my life, I can paint anything but decided to specialize in the art of Historical Laces and Portraiture as this is where I feel the most challenged.
Always an advocate for giving a voice to help the poor and disadvantaged.
Thank you for your support and your comments!
In 2009 five of my paintings each measuring 24x30 were displayed as a solo exhibit in painting for three months ending in July. They were shown in a glass case at the accredited Allhallows Museum in Honiton, Devon, England. The five paintings were chosen for me by their Trustee’s consisting of 4 men and six women. These five paintings appear on my homepage of my business website listed below.
Their website at the time of my exhibit is:
I have heard from Her Majesty by written letter twice via her Lady-In-Waiting’s as to her interest on my art as well as wishing me great success on my upcoming Allhallows Museum exhibit. She was unable to attend as she had a prior engagement.
Other possible exhibits at accredited museums here in the U.S. have written me with interest through 2013. However, due to the poor economy many museums have experienced lay-off’s and cutbacks so the timing has been drastically altered.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
