Art is part of me and the special world it takes me to is almost beyond description.

When I was young and I traveled, I explored museums and parks and back streets and I learned !
I had free reign to explore Chicago, and I did!
These experiences were so varied and exciting for a young person alone and ideas poured into me. Eventually I studied at the Chicago Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I became a child protective worker when I graduated from college and learned the stark realities of poverty and death. Another education in life, a painful attempt to help peole escape the endless circle of cruelty and poverty. My art was sad and angry.
.
I returned to college and got a teaching credential attempting to do something positive. And I painted and painted.
I loved working with children, each one a piece of art themselves. As I got older my art changed and evolved.

When I retired ...Oh have I been waiting for this!!.......Ahhh art,
my release,
my love,
MY WORLD
........... now I can really have time to paint.

I step into my art space with paints and brushes and I begin to paint.....
and I'm gone.
Don't disturb me,
I'm in a world of swirling beautiful color and there I remain , splashing about in pure contentment and joy. All my life experiences come together and colors overtake me as I translate them onto canvas.
Oh what a feeling!!
