Profile Information

For most of my life I've love the arts, i.e.., acting, singing, dancing, painting, writing, cooking, anything that allows me to create in some way shape or form. From a young girl I formed the habit of penning my thoughts on paper.

Growing up I had no one to talk to about how I was feeling about anything. My way of coping was found in keeping diaries and in later years writing a journal. Over time, however, the visual arts (oil painting) have developed into a passion for me. Some years later after much searching I decided to make oil painting my bread and butter and have been doing that by way of auctions and art shows off and on since 2003. It has not been easy and I most definitely have not made any riches choosing to be a self representing artist but it is my passion. That, along with my writing--again, untrained--is very therapeutic and keeps me sane, especially during times I suffer from melancholia.

Today, I still keep a journal on a regular basis and I find as I get older I am enjoying writing creatively more and more. This is where Booksie comes into my experience, because it provides me the opportunity to share my experience and in the process get some feedback from those who know more about the subject of writing than I do. It is also my wish that by sharing my experiences through my writings that I will be able to help someone who may be going through some of what I have gone through.

Everything I do is motivated by wanting to share and help anyone who crosses my life's path. Thank you all in advance for reading my stories.
