are so many people that have supported me and inspired me at various
intervals in my life. I hope that they know who they are, and that
I love them all! I would like to name just a few, who have been
of primary importance in the recent past:
- My husband and soul mate. Without his constant insistence that
I do what I love, my paintings and this site would not exist. He
continues to save my life every day.
Downs - My sister who always has followed her heart in everything
she does, and inspires me to do so when she doesn't even realize
it, from 3000 miles away.
- My beautiful stepdaughter, whose refreshing genuineness and beautiful
innocence is art, all by itself. I love you Sweet Stuff!
rest of my family - Dad, Mom, Kim, Janet, Mary El, and Jim Sr.
Words can not convey how much your love, support, and encouragement
over the past few years has meant to me.
Charles Kerber - My appreciation of your friendship and your
support after my departure from the hospital may only be surpassed
by your part in making sure that I left it.
Cohen - My high school art teacher. I will never forget you!
