Though I’ve dreamed of being an artist since I was a child, when I found my creative voice, I did not try to exhibit my work. Years before I convinced myself that I could not earn a living as a visual artist. So, I majored in Advertising and became a graphic artist instead. I felt it was a good compromise because I could still be artistic and earn a living.
My husband believed dreams should not be compromised. He felt delaying my art career was a dream deferred. He said not exhibiting my paintings was withholding an inspiring gift. We agreed to disagree.
Then in 2002, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I lost the ability to use my hands and I was paralyzed on my left side. Though I could not write legibly, my ability to paint was not affected. I was amazed! Then I realized, my husband was right. Painting was a gift. It was given to me to inspire others. So, in 2005, I started Scott Robinson designs as a venue to share my art with the world.
Now, my childhood dream is no longer deferred. And thank God it did not explode! By exhibiting my art, I am humbly sharing my gift. Hoping to inspire others with each intimate brush stroke.
