The Child has grown the dream has gone


Adult Painting & Other Media (age 18+)

Art for me is a way I can communicate what I am thinking. I want people to see through my eyes and how I see life. This painting is celebrating the differences. We can learn so much about each other by our differences. I have Celiac Disease and have battle this disease since I was a child. I have been misdiagnosed for over 30 years. I had someone mention something about celiac Disease to me one day. After doing a little research on the internet and finding out I can make take control of this disease on my own, I have not turned back. My hope would be to get more information out about the disease and how some basic changes in one’s diets can change the rest of one’s life. There is hope in art and hope in educating ourselves about our disease.
