I’m not a visual artist, but I do love writing. Have had some small bits of writing published in the past, but nothing currently. I’m the mother of 4 kids aged 30, 27, 21 and 12. And grandmother to a toddler and a baby. I’m creative, intuitive, quirky and love a good laugh. I’m bipolar but am successfully managing this with counselling and medication, and by simplifying my life. I enjoy reading, writing, walking, puzzles, movies, facebook, my family. I loathe cooking and often have fantasies that my meals would get delivered to my door free of charge. I daydream a lot but am on the other hand good at figuring out problems when I need to. I’m of Dutch descent, the oldest of 8 children. My 44 year old brother took his life in December 2009. Still coming to terms with this.
