After a lengthy career in corporate America, I read a book about transitioning into retirement. One of the tips in the book suggested to experiment with a hobby you enjoyed as a child to see if you still enjoyed it. So, I experimented with acrylic painting, which I did enjoy as a child, and fell back in love with it. I have only been painting professionally for a short while but have found my sweet spot is painting large, colorful abstracts. I continue to learn and challenge myself by experimenting with new ideas, color combinations, and designs. I live in Birmingham, AL, USA, where I love to paint, play with my grandchildren, read and enjoy being outdoors.
