|I am a 39 year old wife and mother of two teenage boys. I work full time at a local hospital as a Quality Improvement Coordinator. I have had no professional art training. My father was an artist and died in 1997. At that time we put all of his art supplies in storage. In the fall of 2003 I finally took all of his art stuff out and began painting on my own. I have evolved greatly since then. I paint what I can feel and what I hear and tend to express my emotions on canvas. My style is generally abstract however, the painting I included is a nude with an abstract edge.
