Hi! ~ I'm an artist and crafter from the mountains of North Carolina, USA. In addition, I am a classically trained pastry chef and pro photographic artist, proficient in photography, Adobe applications and Corel Painter. I am single, have two precious children (ages 21 and 26) and a frisky Bengal cat named Effie. I am intrigued by how others use their creative gifts. I love to paint digitally and then add some "real" paint before finishing my pieces. I also love to retouch photos and restore old and damaged ones. I struggle at some point every week with Meniere's disease (migraines/vertigo) and back pain. I try to make the best of my good days and delve deep into creativity (when I'm not playing "catch up"). I lost my father in October 2016, to a two year fight with cancer and my brother, my only sibling, passed away in January 2017. I am hoping to find healing while grieving by sharing with others in the SwapBot community.
