I am an artist, who also has Parkinson's disease (diagnosed in 2008). I knew I wanted to be an artist of some kind since age 3. I majored in art at Furman University, class of 1973. I received the Mattie Hipp Cunningham scholarship for excellence in creativity in the visual arts my junior year 1972. I have worked professionally as a technical illustrator and freelanced doing paintings and drawings. I have created hand-woven items and sold them at craft fairs. I have created cloth dolls and stuffed animals and donated them to children at Christmas through toy drives locally.
I have created 10 self-published books through Blurb.com......having to do with my art, poetry, animals and family. Five are on Amazon.com and eight are in the Apple iBookstore in eBook format. All 10 books can be found in the Blurb.com bookstore online. My Author's Page on Amazon.com is here (copy & paste):
In 2008, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I still do drawings currently to sell through FineArtAmerica.com and my own website: http://2-denise-fulmer.artistwebsites.com.
I am still an artist no matter what condition my body is in. Being an artist is a condition of the soul.
My art can be whimsical, romantic, emotional, timeless, and sometimes spiritual. My art created before 2008, does not show the Parkinson's tremors she now has. I invite you to take a look..... and see what you think and feel.
I am on YouTube with 17 videos, Google+, and Twitter if you wish to follow me there. And now am on Red Bubble :http://www.redbubble.com/people/denisefulmer33
