I have been an artist most of my life creating with various types of mediums. I have had some informal training which I have greatly appreciated. Because of my love to create I have also tried to teach others how to find their inner artist through my teachings as 'Picture Lady' to elementary and middle school children and also in teaching adults in my local painting events. I have also created and illustrated two children's sympathy books for family and friend. I have spent many years creating what I called 'Sunshine Boxes' for those in need. These were highly individualized and served one of two purposes; first was providing comfort and lasting memories of a lost loved one. secondly, to bring compassion, hope, inspiration and peace of mind for those living through an extremely difficult time, be it their own illness, or someone they are caring for. I am married with 4 children and 4 grandchildren.
