I am a full time artist...selling and donating my work in Minnesota galleries. I have written a few unpublished works for motivational workshops, and I can't count how many self-help books that I have read. Dr. Wayne Dyer (I am sorry he is no longer with us) is one of my favorite authors, his books have helped me in my life's journey when I needed it most! In 1994 I graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a BFA in art education. After substitute teaching for 10 years, I decided to become a full time artist and grandmother. Now I have started the "Commingle" group where people come together to share life experiences, ponder fun topics & create art which has been great FUN.
