"Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." Helen Keller
Today is my birthday and the beginning of a new year! I feel blessed in many ways. I am so happy that I made the decision 14 years ago to quit my secure job as a lab technician to stay at home and pursue art. I was scared, lonely and I had no idea what I was doing but I just knew that I had to draw, paint, mix gooey colorful messes and create. I have made so many wonderful new friends. Artists are the best!
