"I enjoy laughing and smiling during AFTS studio time with artists and volunteers in the program. I enjoy the energy level leading up to the art shows. At the annual show I amaze myself sometimes. This gives me the passion to create more."

My motivation – people, friends and artists reach out to me - are you still painting, are you still creating…these are people I know and love my work. Then I think through, oh my, I haven’t painted in a while and I need to get back to it. I got excited and motivated and dropped the ball a bit during COVID, it was a challenge. I have to work through isolation, be positive and get back to what you like doing.
