I live in the confines of accounting in my work. My relaxation away from work is playing with color and shapes. Creativity is challenging for me. I love to practice, always practice.
My grandmother, Elenor, was a student at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1934, student # 78531. She grew up in Chicago. My aunt passed on a portfolio of work from her years at the AIC. I shared most of the sketches with my niece who is following her passion in are at the American Academy of Art.
Elenor raised their family, later building on her talents in retirement in Phoenix Arizona. She is an inspiration to me.
