I kind of feel like I am starting my third life. I was a kid, then a mom and teacher, and now I'm exploring life as a grandma and an artist. It is a good life I live.
I've lived in Washington state my whole life, graduated from UW in the early 70's, married, had 3 kids, taught for 30 years and just recently retired from public education.
I have always been drawn to art and creativity. I have sewn, whittled, knitted, and even built my own deck. Currently, I'm drawn to mixed media art. It is fun to play with paints, inks, stamps, papers and clay.
This blog is meant to share my path as a newly minted artist.
