Biography



About the Artist
I loved to draw as a child-mostly ladies in long beautiful dresses.  I guess at one point in time, I thought I might pursue clothes design as a career. My mother passed away when I was 17 though and the social worker at MD Anderson helped me so much that I began to seriously consider social work as my college major.  It wasn’t until years later after having children of my own that I discovered painting.
