While everybody’s journey is different, I am blessed to have been able to adjust mine and turn it into a purpose, from seeing the depths of hell, having spent over 15 years in institutions and prisons to overcoming addiction. Today I am a witness that Recovery and God were my solution, along with art! But it wasn’t about painting a pretty picture, I needed to design a new LIFE and that’s the MIRACLE I DID!
