I discovered I was an artist late in life. My mother was very talented, but never found the time to pick up a paint brush. I remember telling her that if I had her talent, I would never stop painting. She would tell me I have talent, I just have to paint.
After her death – and as if to defy her – I took an oil painting class. I came home and showed my husband the finished painting and said, ‘I think I can paint’.
I never looked back. At age 58, I discovered the artist in me.
I like to think of myself as Grandma Moses without the following or the money, but I’m working on both. The world as I see it is full of color and I try to reflect that in everything I paint. I have exhibited in galleries throughout Florida and at Art Prize in Michigan.
