I see myself surviving

Add To Cart


I entered my first contest in 4th grade and won.  I continued my art into high school.  I joined the service and ended up in Vietnam.  When I was honorably discharged I had no interest in painting.  I suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with PTSD.  The Palo Alto VA in Menlo Park offered Art Therapy so I joined the class.

Coping through Art

With the help of Jeff Stadler I soon had an interest in painting again.  Art Therapy has given me an outlet to express my pain that has been held inside for decades, it's now on canvas.
