|Bio - a little about me
|I am married to a man who encourages me and is supportive of my art pursuits. I have three grown sons. They are all married and each is a successful professional in his own right. Through my sons and their terrific wives I am the proud grandmother of five wonderful grandsons. |
Having reached this stage in my life, I am finally able to direct my attention to doing what I have always wanted to do: create art. I truly love it.
