Celiac won't stop me. Despite a diagnosis that leaves me unable to work full-time, Celiac allowed me to see that my creative side can be a source of income - and that's how my business, CreativeCeliac, started. I am a published author of several short stories and experimental poetry who also does paint pours and mixed media art in addition to making handmade dog collars! Having a creative outlet allowed me to process a life changing diagnosis of a lifelong, incurable autoimmune disease. Check out my Gallery and art classes at BYOBcc!
