I was born and raised and spent most of my life in a suburb of London, England until 1996 when my late husband and I emigrated to the United States.
I began to paint and make jewelery about 8 years ago, after I lost my husband to Cancer. I needed something to do!! That probably sounds very strange to most people when they more than likely have too much to do!! For myself I am now over 60 and live by myself, in the middle of nowhere and do not drive!!!
Creating art for me virtually saved my sanity. It has enabled me to become more aware of my surroundings and my Spirituality. I have become calm and peaceful largely because of it.
"Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life?" ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
