After years of studying, teaching and creating art, mostly acrylic paintings, I was diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.

I was pronounce legally blind!

One of the things that I feared the most was that I would never paint again. I started looking for a way to create, in spite of my diminished vision. This led to my current technique – a hybrid of traditional painting and digital assistance. You see, I discovered that by hooking my computer up to my 55 inch TV I could zoom in and do my work.

Now, my vision is back to normal. With the help of a very good doctor and a couple miracles along the way, my vision was restored.
