From an upstate-New York-farmer's daughter to an aspiring artist at the Art Students League my life has been a great journey. My residences have included New York City, New York and Lahore, Pakistan.
Although my core is one of conservative, religious values, I am a free spirited liberal when it comes to my friendships. My strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit have led me from legal secretary to artist; from store owner (cartoon character clothing for adults before there were Disney stores) to newspaper publisher. "The Informer" served 8 communities in the Elizabeth, NJ area and contained only good news, advice columns and cultural event listings.
Currently I rehab old houses, watercolor and write. I am chastised by my young friends to remember my age when my energy exceeds theirs but the only ones who tire me out are my curious, loveable, energizer-bunny-grandchildren.
My biggest accomplishment to date has been successfully raising my two children who now have children of their own. That was truly a grand adventure.
