"I love to create; it's truly a blessing to do what you love.” - Johanne immis
I was very young when I started to draw; I just had to have a piece of paper and a pen nearby to sketch out my thoughts and ideas. I did not speak English very well when I moved to Brooklyn, NY, which made me very shy. I would draw on pieces of paper and give them to my family and friends; they loved it!
I created Digital Coloring Pages and Art Apparel with my own unique touches. After 5 years, I quit my part-time job to be my own Boss full time...what an experience! I wanted to quit plenty of emotional nights and I even doubted my decision to start my own business.
I wrote my first eBook and named it "Bosses Never Quit!". Art, Poems and Notes that reflect drive and endurance.
My message to you is "Bosses Never Quit!" so take action and go for the life that you want!

I wanted to capture the beautiful sunrise.
It turned out amazing!
