“After taking a long hiatus when my children were young, I have recently reconnected to what it is I love about art—both creating it and teaching it to children. In the winter of 2009, I carved out a space in the basement of my home—wedging my ‘studio’ between the furnace and the water heater, and I began to paint. The process and the discipline required has rekindled my longtime curiosity, as well as help me rediscover my natural skills.”
