Why am I here? I don't always know. I would like to call myself an artist, but I am usually raw emotion. A bundle of discombobulated feeling that comes out in fragments. I will listen to a song and a picture forms. I escape into the creation when I can't escape the reality. I love music. I see a picture in every song if that makes any sense. I may never achieve the status of artist, but I love creating and will continue to do so for as long as I can.BIOI just turned 38 this year...wow where does the time go?<br /> I have six children rangeing in age from 6 to 18. My youngest started kinder last fall and my oldest graduates this spring. Until I had children I thought I knew it all. Now I know that I know absolutely nothing about anything.<br /> I have loved art my whole life. In both the written form and the painted form, from pencil sketches to photography. It is my way of expressing my innerself and my feelings.<br /> Outside of art I love hiking, photography, gardening, my rescued animals and reading.
