I am a wounded warrior but I don't let my war injuries define me. I like that I can help people by showing them that even though life throws obstacles our way, there is no reason to give up because life is always worth living.
Art has always been a tool I used to express myself. After losing my right arm and many fingers on my left hand, I thought painting would not be possible again. However in July 2011 I picked-up a paint brush with my remaining left fingers and began to experiment! Initially I was painting just for myself, but friends and family started to inquire about my art. Before I knew it, I was getting attention and requests from people I had never even met.
I thank God everyday for my friends, family, the talent and abilities He has given me.
