Right out of art school, my friend called and said she needed to talk because her husband had left her with two small children to raise. I went to her house and sat on her bathroom floor and painted flowers and birds on her ball and claw bathtub, while she Talked about her problems and cried.


We shared tea and I dipped my paintbrush in my tea cup a few times because I was so sad listening to her. The art took a few weeks to complete and it cheered her up.  Without my knowing it, she sent a picture of the tub to the "NY Times" and my painting ran in Enid Nemy's "Discoveries" column.

It launched my career. I got calls from all over the country and soon magazines were contacting me for new projects I could supply them. for feature stories.
