Like everyone, I am not ‘just a…’
I am a wife, with a very supportive husband; I am a mother with four daughters and a son; I am a grandmother with three grandsons and three granddaughters.
I love food—sometimes too much—so I walk our dog and do yoga.
I am a former executive administrative assistant and free-lance conference planner who now enjoys pursuing painting, photography, and writing and who travels as often as we can afford to.
I use my photographs from these travels as references for my paintings, though I am not a professional photographer. But I love to play with my photos and have branched out into digital art photography … actually, it’s consuming a lot of my time, enjoyably so.
I enjoy my flower gardens—but I don’t grow veggies—I should, but I don’t.
With concurrence from my supportive husband, our former dining room is my art studio—it had the best light—and half of the den is my writing centre. I actually completed and self-published my book, “Who ARE these people?”, which is a compilation of stories about my ancestors.
Life is good.
