Allow me to formally introduce myself. My name is Christine McCohnell. You have probably figured that out by now by surfing the Timeless Paradise website.
If you read other posts here, you might be wondering why I only utilize my left hand to design my creations. Well, to start with, I was a fourteen pound baby! Due to the lack of oxygen to my brain at birth, I developed Cerebral Palsy. It affects the whole right side of my body – it has spams and I have no control over it. In other words it is difficult to open my right hand.
All my life I only had my left hand to count on, so to speak. It does help me to create unique artwork…although the timeframe is longer to complete a creation.
I have written a book about my journey through life, “Only You Christine, Only You!!” The book goes into detail about multiple aspects of my life, including how I acquired my disability, how I was mainstream at 7th grade, and how I got my driver’s license, just to name a few. I think you will find it to be a good read. The book also goes into detail of my life prior to marriage.
You can find it on Amazon or you can purchase it through me and I will autograph it for you. The book is about one woman’s journey with Cerebral Palsy. This website is about my art.
In this blog, I am planning to include stories that you won’t believe…you won’t find it boring. I hope that in these blogs I can really concentrate on my arts and technique, and how to use the design of creation.
Thanks for visiting!
If you’re interested in a part of my journey and art and would like to know more about it, feel free to drop me a line and ask. I will try my best to accommodate.
