So from that you will find many pieces in my shop that have either braille incorporated into them or a lot of texture.My daughter just loves to come and put her little hands all over my pieces now so that she can really get a feel for the piece.I love to create and I do it because it makes me happy I have paintings all over the world from China, Iceland , France and even Germany all of which I am very proud of . I could not do this without the support of my wonderful family. I have a terrific husband and three beautiful children who are my strength and inspiration. I hope this has opened up a little window for you into my world I don't take days to think about a piece there is no planning or contemplating it is just me Mom of three painting from my heart.Recently my work was featured on NBC's TODAY show with Kathy Lee and Hoda as one of their favorite things it is one of my favorite things also as it was a piece from my braille series that I created just for my daughter. I can also be found on Etsy under the username JMJstudio.
