Thank you for taking the time to look at my art.
I'm 68 years old and
the proud mother of 3 grown children; 1 boy and 2 girls.
given me 7 grandchildren; 5 girls and 2 boys.
2 great grandchildren; 1 girl and 1 boy.
In my early 20's I was
diagnosed with Epilepsy. I spent the following 27 years on
medication to control seizures.
I was unable to process any kind of connection between my brain & my
fingers to create any kind of art.
My main priority was to care for my husband & children.
Finally in 1997 the seizures stopped and I was able to stop taking medication.
In 2003 I was asked by
a friend to do a sculpture of a female Angel
HANDS for the Providence Festival of Trees here in Medford.
The tree is still being displayed each Christmas.
On January 31, 2005 I drew a
pencil sketch of JESUS, which was the
beginning of a new journey
and was a complete inspiration to start creating art.
My first real
attempt at painting was to paint on rocks. I figured if I painted on
didn't like it
I could always throw the rock away
or paint over it. I began to see images on specific rocks like the
which is one of my favorites. I began to get requests for rock
paintings and each one was a new challenge.
I'm now painting on canvas, I'm
enjoying my senior years painting and loving it.
hope you enjoyed looking at my work.
I am only able to paint in my spare
time. My husband was injured in a near fatal auto accident
in 2009 and he needs constant care, which I willingly do. He's my
greatest fan. He calls me;
"JOANGELO"; it's so endearing. He had severe injury to his brain, it
has altered his life,
but we see more and more recovery everyday. The doctors gave him no hope.
All I can say is....Look what GOD can do!!
