As some know, I manage chronic back pain, and it has been progressively getting worse over the years. As of April 2018, my right (dominant) hand has been acting up as well as my right wrist, arm and shoulder along with neck pain and headaches/migraines. This is all conjunction with my lower chronic back pain and leg pain. This is the year I am focusing on getting back on track with my health! This does not mean I am giving up on my passion in creating my artwork, long from it! I am going to work hard with my doctors to discover what is going on with my health and see what I can do to tackle the issue and manage symptoms the best way I possibly can.

Do not worry, I am still around and plan on participating and selling my artwork at small local Modesto California art events such as The Black Hearts Market at the Queen Bean Coffee House and every third Thursday of the month during the Modesto Art Walk (at Still Smoking Modesto), when my body allows, AKA when it is not hurting. Be sure to keep up with my Art Events page to see where I will be selling my artwork at next!

My artwork such as paintings, drawings, mixed media, handcrafted items as well as art prints are always available for sale via my website, just visit my Art Shop! If you have any questions about my artwork or would like to contact me personally, feel free to use my Contact Page and I will get back with you as soon as I can. Please understand due to current health issues, I am not taking any commission jobs and am taking some time off from creating art in order to focus on my health and getting well.


Thank You for your understanding and continuous support!
