About me

Industry Arts
Introduction I am a mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt redefining life as I know it. My oldest three children have truly found their soul mates and gifted me with the sweetest and most brilliant grandchildren. My youngest child just turned 24. He was born too soon,too small, and with physical disabilities. He was very sick and very small. The legacy of this rushed arrival is autism, blindness, cerebral palsy, and cognitive challenges. Life with this young man is never dull and rarely easy. I am recently divorced after 39 years of marriage and am back in college following my passion for design. I share a home with two very large furballs. Lily came from the shelter and Louie joined her when his first family could no longer care for him. I could not have survived the last year without them. I am creating a new life, with new skills, and am proud of the progress I have made. I have been on the Dean's list since I enrolled. I have a new home, an historic cottage with more charm than amenities. I am finding my own voice, my own style, and am creating my own happiness.
