Do I look like an artist? Probably not.  What you see is a grandmother of six, a lover of mystery books, a gardener and a woman business owner.  But who am I?  I LOVE harmony in my surroundings, fairness and knowing why people do what they do; I love beauty and color and creative joy and the excitement of discovery; I figure if other people can do something I can learn how to do it too so I’ve made wine and cheese and upholstered furniture; I am deeply spiritual and passionate about knowing God and loving people like Jesus does; and woven through all areas of my life I value peace and beauty. I am an artist.

But do I look like an artist?  Yes, if you look past my clothes and white hair and see my delight in painting and helping others paint, you’ll see the artist inside me.
