In the studio with Milessa

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

October 1, 2018, will mark my thirty-fourth year painting. 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 our seven-year old grandson. Together we have five children and three grandchildren. Life is good!
