I was born and raised in Strasbourg, France, and lived in Germany for five years before coming to the United States of America in 1974. Although not speaking or understanding any English, I learned the language by reading out loud newspapers and listening to Country Western songs.
While in France and the United States, I was employed as a Mental Health teacher for a total of 40 years. In 2001 I was diagnosed with MS and began Avonex medication.
In 2006 I began visiting a local Senior Center and began painting classes. Drawing is not my forte so I began painting with acrylics. More painting instruction introduced me to abstract art. The pictures I am submitted are my recent abstract creations.
