Verna is an artist from Austin, Texas in USA. Her artistry started when she was 34, after she got diagnosed with MS:
“I have been painting since 1998. When I was 32 I had a life-altering experience. Through painting I have found a way to give completely of myself. It shows those I love, who I am, how I feel, and fully exposes my heart. This gives me peace.
I began painting at 34, I was drawn to colors, flowers, life…..I’ve been looking for answers as to why I have suddenly been given this gift. What can I do with it to make a difference?”
Today, her beautiful oil paintings of flower take her all over the country. .
“Travel has been very easy and enjoyable with my byACRE rollator. Pat (my rollator) has been my amazing assistant! So lightweight, agile, and able to travel anywhere. I get to be independent – I love it.
The last trip I did was to Orlando, when I was transporting oil paintings to a customer. Our future trips to Albuquerque, NM and Sedona, AZ will be similar. In January 2023, we are taking a trip to Maui, Hawaii. I have checked with my airline, and I will be able to use my rollator the entire walk to the entrance of the plane. At that point, I will quickly pack it in the travel bag and they will put it in the cargo storage for the flight. When we land in Maui, I will get it back from the cargo hull and I will unpack the rollator – then off I will go to a tropical paradise.
I’m so excited! Thanks to my byACRE rollator and Travel bag, I still have the freedom to travel the world.”
