As luck would have it, I remembered a very well-known retired local painter, John David Epp, and contacted him to see if he’d be willing to share his amazing talent with me. He agreed, and I went for my first lesson in January, 2014.

As I learn and grow with my painting, I will take on a great challenge. I will to try and paint what is nearly impossible to

describe in words: what I saw in my 44 hours of waking visions during my near death experience.  My publisher has suggested we use these paintings to illustrate my book, Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus: The extraordinary visions of an ordinary woman (FreshVoice, Indie Ink Publishing, 2016). As I complete new paintings for the book, I hope to get feedback from you on which ones to choose.

I will also be offering paintings for sale. If you join the email list (to the right) you will be notified when new paintings are added to the Gallery.
