I am a native of Auburn, AL and moved to Nashville 25 years ago with my singer/songwriter husband. After 25 years in corporate human resources I traded my HR hat for a paintbrush. In October 2009 I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was not the end, but a new different part of my story. I wouldn’t trade the clarity and sense of purpose my diagnosis gave me for a minute. Painting has become therapy for me. To the extent we listen to our Holy Spirit is the extent to which we find peace. And so goes my love affair with the color and texture of painting. Most of my work is done on canvas, although I love the feel of painting on old wood or vintage metal. I am a firm believer that to whom much is given, much is expected. And so, my year-end giving each year goes to Samaritan’s Purse, specifically to aid their work to eradicate child trafficking. Thank you for helping make it possible for me to give in this way.
