I find calmness when I paint, and my emotions can flow through my paint brushes. I had no formal training, just create what I feel in my heart.
Colleen loved painting and drawing pictures, so when I paint, I feel close to her.
This bond will last for as long as I live.

Writing poetry is something I can do quickly and I find that most times, the words just flow. I've written a novel, I write essays, articles and short stories, but poetry is the only medium in which Spirit consistently speaks through me.
Creativity is nothing more than taking the human condition (from joy to suffering) and converting to art.

I find it very therapeutic to do embroidery for others. This creates meaningful and special creations for them to have.
