I am a self-taught artist living in Miami. I was a scientist for more than 30 years and I loved every minute of it. In 2014 my career ended, I had several hospitalizations with mental and neurological issues. It was a slow recovery, and the making of art played an enormous part on my healing process. My artwork has had a warm reception. This has made possible the exhibit and sale of my work which have helped to restore my self-esteem and the start of a new career as an artist. I made quilted drawings with cloth and thread. The colors and patterns of the fabric pieces inspire the story I draw in top of them.
