I am from and live in a wonderful rural place, Manitoulin Island. The Island is in George Bay in Lake Huron and is one hundred miles long. I am an art novice. I have taken two watercolor courses that developed this desire to create art. I have a BA in Anthropology and work for a small municipality as the clerk treasurer. I am also secretary treasurer for the local Cemetery Board and the Manitoulin Municipal Association. I also was on the charter board for the Friends of Misery Bay that is a nature reserve park. I am now enjoying my second marriage and have lovely children, grand children and step children.
