Essay:

When I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2007, I thought the end was near. What I found instead was life just beginning and strangely, a great blessing. I had never painted before until a friend handed me a brush and said, "paint what you see." I now paint nearly every day with great personal satisfaction. My art provides enjoyment to many others and has also raised thousands of dollars for charity causes.
