I've been drawing animals since I was 12. I sent my picture into one of 'those' ads and they said, Of course, I had potential to take their classes. At 12 with no income, that was not a possibility. I continued to draw off and on since. I took an art illustration class at Illinois State University. I love to draw, paint, make dolls, scrapbook for special people, sew, and write children and young adult books. I graduated from Illinois State University at 43. My friendships are forever. My best girlfriend since 3rd grade is still my best girlfriend. I miss a lot of the familiar 1950s and 1960s, but technology is exciting to have at my command. I am single now. I have two beautiful daughters and six wonderful grands.
Please enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it.
