Artist’s Statement

UpThinkArt Story

As a child, I was always very creative, but my life’s work didn’t follow that path.  In 2005, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma followed by 2 more cancers.  I was destined for Leukemia, so in 2012 I had a Bone Marrow Transplant.  I am now in total cancer remission.

Having an opportunity to start a new life, I have decided that I want it to be a creative one that brings me to a closer connection with my heart and soul…  I am focusing on creating uplifting and inspirational artwork that expresses my inner spiritual self and celebrates the precious gift of life.

I hope you enjoy my poems; they come through when I am able to keep my mind still and just listen.
