Retired single Mother of 2 adult sons and 1 daughter (deceased of AIDS). Before moving to the N.Cascade mountains of W.Wa.,USA. I enjoyed self-employment as a “Girl Friday” for wealthy families around the Puget Sound area on one of our fantastic bodies of water. In my ‘short’ lifetime, also I have been employed by the Boeing Commercial Airplane Co. as a Graphics Computer Technician, spent some yrs. as a Licensed Massage Therapist, taught Phys.Ed. at a Jr.College in Alaska and probably a few other occupations that don’t come redily to mind!
When I moved here, with fantastic views of mountains and a major wild river running by my house, I determined to return to the art of my youth. Now, I have exhibited and sold some of my framed watercolor paintings. While living here 18 yrs. so far, the enTIRE process of my Personal Fine Art development has been one of constant learning & risk taking….& always good therapy.
Besides my Passion (which is painting), I like to garden, cook & read. I am fond of most music, especially the new ‘world’ music. Occasionally, I am moved to write poetry.
I live w/a senior cat named: SamiSan (with a deep bow of great respect, Please!).
Before becoming ‘otherly abled’, I had hiked and backpacked all over the West Coast States. For several years, I also sailed my ‘small craft’ in Puget Sound.
