My Memoir: “A Light in the Darkness: Transcending Chronic Illness through the Power of Art and Attitude,” is coming soon (2018)!! Living with a chronic illness for ten years, I’ve constantly been creating art and music to help me heal. This story is my inspirational journey as an artist persevering through debilitating chronic disease and disability through the lens of creativity and power of positive attitude. My confessions and life lessons offer support, compassion, strength, connection, encouragement, motivation, and hope-a light in the darkness-to those battling chronic illness and disability, as well as life challenges.
