My name is Mirian Nieves Gilbert , I am born and raised in Chicago,Illinois. I am married to Tommy E. Gilbert veteran of the US Navy. I am mother to a great son Benny. I'm an artist, poet, crafter, mother all I have learned has been self taught. I believe that all good things come from God. I don't believe I'd draw the way I do or write the way I do if God hadn't wanted me to.
