Growing up dyslexic was difficult back in the day. No one knew about dyslexia back then. I would hear growing up was, “she is very intelligent, but is not applying herself.” I was bullied by kids who though I was stupid. I graduated high school with a 2nd grade level of reading. Handicap, yes, but I learned how to deal with it. I self taught myself how to use photoshop and illustrator back in the early 80’s. I then went to work for a very large newspaper as a graphic artist. Went on to owning my own newspaper, designing the entire paper monthly. I could go on about all the different jobs that I have had throughout the years but that would take up an entire page. My passion is creating art and photography.
