Kelly ~ Artist Extraordinaire


Kelly painting with Watercolor at Hospital

Artist Kelly of Simple Spirit of Monterey

“Being diagnosed with acute leukemia has given me a second chance at life, literally.

I no longer want to live another moment with unhappy lifestyles, people, jobs or circumstances that will hinder my overall sense of purpose and joy. Life is precious and it can end in a second. Before cancer, I had forgotten these things; I had forgotten all the simple things in life that bring me great pride, contentment, and joy. I was becoming one of the many that just seemed to exist and not reach out to tap into our true gifts and universal paths.

Since I have been painting in the hospital, I have been able to let go of my deadly disease and live in the present - without fear - and to feel good again about what I have accomplished throughout my life. I am a painter!!
