It’s Wyanne…like “Y-anne”….not Wayne…he’s my brother.

I’ve been a full time artist since 1997, and have been blessed to have my work in collections all over the world.  My art has been licensed by Natural Life Inc. and several greeting card companies.

In late 2013, I was diagnosed with oral cancer. It was a shock, since I’m relatively young, eat healthy and never smoked. In January 2014, I underwent a 13 hour surgery in which my entire tongue was removed and 66 lymph nodes from my neck. After that, chemo and radiation, and an extremely difficult year long recovery process. I lost my ability to talk well and swallow. I take all my nutrition through a feeding tube.

Thankfully, I don’t have to talk to paint…and the whole process has taught me so much. Living in the moment and being grateful for every little thing.

Over a year later, I’m still cancer free! I’m painting more than ever…it’s the one thing the “Big C” couldn’t take away! I’m back to teaching online classes, and concentrating on larger paintings.  Life is grand!
