I am 64, A Mom and Grandma, I have managed to make it through cancer treatment (now in remission). So I find everyday is precious and I try to do some form of my artistry each day. It keeps me busy and my mind occupied with something I love. It 's all a great gift that God has given me and I want to use it in a way that will be pleasing to Him.
I have been an artist most of my life, at least that was what I called myself growing up. I would draw on anything. I've written hundreds of poems, some have been lost, some are still here somewhere; (Now if I could just find them). Some of the poetry has been published in newspapers, online poetry sites, etc.
I currently have several pieces showing at a local gallery.
Networking has become my best source of finding new places to try and I am enjoying immensely all the new people I've met doing the same thing. I have often gone to local Farmer's markets, City Festivals in neighboring towns.
If you get a chance to see any of my work, or any artists' work, encourage them and enjoy their labors of love.
