I’ve been an artist my entire life- pencil drawings, watercolor, fabric design, fractals, pastels, jewelry making, poetry and I’ve written my first novel, a romance/science fiction, “The Girl in the Bird,” available on Amazon. Art has always been very important for me and sometimes I’ve even felt compelled to create. I’ve done some of my best work when I was hospitalized for my bipolar depression. I’d like people to know that folks with disabilities or mental illness are fascinating, valuable contributors to society.
