Interests fishing, painting, writing and woodworking
I've been an artist on and off most of my life but my focus changed when I was forced into early retirement. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2005 and by 2009 my symptoms drove me from the workforce. In January 2010 decided it was time for me to focus on art. Since then I paint almost daily in order to hone my skills and discovered painting helps smooth out some of my Parkinson's symptoms. My art would be considered realism but as my symptoms progress I'm leaning towards impressionism, which does not require the fine motor skills.
