In the studio with Milessa

Since we may not have met, yet, welcome and yes, my name is spelled M-I-L-E-S-S-A.  It’s a funny story but I’ll go into that another time.

I’ve painted over 500 pieces, most of them the past 5 years, but as I look back, I am reminded of my humble beginnings as an artist. I have fond memories of my youth growing up in West Texas during a somewhat calm and peaceful era. Embedded in my memory bank are sweet songs on the radio with little jingles for advertising, humorous television shows geared for the whole family, riding my horse or bicycle until dark and no phone calls after 8 pm or during dinner. Life was good; and as Walt Disney said, “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever.”

I live and work in the DFW area where my husband and I raise one of our young  grandsons. Together we have five children and four grandchildren. Life is good! dei gratia…Milessa
