Book: Our Special Child: Jason's Story
I am a woman, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and a good friend. This is what defines me. What I present to you on this website is a mixed media artist who creates inspirational art and fiber creations. What most inspired me to launch my business is the valuable lessons I learned for twenty-eight years raising a son with cerebral palsy. I was his nurse, social worker, advocate, therapist and most importantly, a loving mother. My book, Our Special Child: Jason's Story, will soon be available and you can purchase it here on this website.
I create mixed media paintings and designs because I want to share the valuable lessons I learned caring for my son. He inspired me every day and it is now my turn to pay if forward.
I lived in Philadelphia for most of my life. Nine years ago my husband and I moved ten miles north of Philly to Bucks County, Pennsylvania. I loved the city but it was time to live in a more peaceful surroundings in my retirement years.
I started creating my business four years ago after I retired from my federal government position. I worked over 40 years of my life, 22 years with the federal government.
I am sole owner of my business and designer. I love working alone, making my own decision and working the hours I choose to work. I share my time babysitting my two grandchildren and working out at the gym. Life is good and I am making the most of it.
