PERSONAL
Perhaps it deserves mentioning that although there is a great gap of time between the early years of my education in the Arts and
the current involvement in developing those talents my passion for them has always been there. During this period of time I was
consumed with the all-rewarding occupation of raising 8 children. When the youngest entered school I was able to branch out and
bring in extra income with my acquired accounting skills. This however did nothing to fuel my passion for art. I am now enjoying
the satisfaction of allowing these talents to be productive and in this have already achieved a long awaited goal.
