As I reach the prime of my life, I finally feel like I am fitting into myself, discovering what I truly love, and following my dream. While I wish I had discovered my passion at a younger age, I still have a lifetime to pursue my love of art that Iíve only discovered just a couple of years ago. I donít know how it eluded me, or how I missed it, but now that Iíve found it, I finally feel at home.
Born in 1953 and raised in Union, Missouri, I am one of nine children. We were raised in a musically talented family. My mother, a seamstress, was creative in so many ways. I had one year of art (required) in high school and really donít remember it. My love growing up was playing french horn. My musical talent afforded me a full scholarship to University of Missouri Columbia. I attended but didnít finish and spent the majority of my lifetime in Corporate America, trading stocks and bonds, managing personnel, and wondering if thatís all there was. Now I know, it wasnít...thereís ART!!!
After the loss of my husband, Charlie, I took a different path, one that has allowed me to experience life in so many ways, assisting others in finding their purpose and passion ó which ultimately led me to the discovery of my love for art and the creative process. I know now, thereís no turning back!
