Meet the Artist
Welcome to JLWLIT Abstracts a brand that speaks for itself. Painting and writing are a few of my passions. My LOGO "Readable Strokes" is how my story started. I never imagined creating sketches and writing stories was so therapeutic. It started when shopping was no longer my go to, so I drove to Michael's, purchased my first easel, sketch pads, and canvases the first day, then back to the Michaels the next day. I bought every beautiful hue of acrylic paint on the shelf. Chalk, and colored pencils was on the shopping list as well. When I realized shopping was an outlet with little return, I shifted my focus to painting, sketching stroke by stroke as hours seem like minutes never missing a beat.
As a wife and mother I have been a nurturer my adult life, caring for family meant everything to me. My parents were always my rock as they aged the circle of life got real. I cherished my family. Time was precious as my kids became adults, married and parents what seemed like overnight. It was a blessing to have my parents see their grandkids become adults. I loss my dad at age 87, continued to spoil my mom, she stayed the course 14 years with family and friends before her health declined. Later we had to get long term care for my mom at a decent nursing home. The facility was like my second home when my mothers health declined, as she required 24 hours care. It became my new norm, many days were spent there caring for her several days a week, the hours were long. When I thought it was safe to exit her room as she dozed off, trying not to wake her, she would wake up then ask me to stay. It was too cute and without question, I halted my exit . Time slipped away as minutes turned to hours. It was then, I realized it was best to figure out a way to utilize my time wisely to be productive. I discovered a way to work my hobby designing sketches while she slept. I looked forward to our visits and appreciated the time spent with my sweetie prior to her passing at age 92.
I absolutely love the art of painting, I would share pic's of my art work with my family mainly my adult kids and was amazed by their responses. It was then when I realized maybe there's something to this passion. As intrigued as I was to hear their responses it was easy to second guess the gift. It was time to stop procrastinating the day I decided to birth Abstrabulous, sketching was my therapy. I'm excited to share with you my first family coloring book.
