|Me and My Art in the Gallery|
|My youngest, almost 13! year old son|
|My husband and my friend's little boy (Isn't he adorbs?)|
I currently live in Conway, Arkansas- not far from where I grew up in a little town called Morrilton. I have lived in several different states and several different countries. I have taught English as a Second Language to college aged students, as well as Math, English, Science and Art to students in grades 12-4th. I have taught summer school to preschoolers up to 2nd graders.
Several years ago I started a new chapter in my life when I became totally and permanently disabled and could not work for numerous reasons. That was also about the time I got divorced. So, I sold my house and moved closer to my mother who is deaf and grandmother who is blind. They are getting older and I thought that we could all take care of each other :-) My sister and brother-in-law just bought a house with mother-in-law quarters so here I am, just me and my beloved husband Trey and my sons.
This morning, I am moving 3/4 time up to Terra Studios to work on my art and healing my body from chronic pain. I still live in Conway with my family but will be near Fayetteville most of the time. They will come and stay with me and I will come and stay with them some, as it is harder for me to drive further than the grocery store.... on a good health day.
If you have never heard of Terra Studios, you may check out their website ...... www.terrastudios.org
There is a FREE art park that seems to go on for miles and is great for entertaining children and adults alike. There is a gallery (I have pieces there :-) ), a cafe, classes, art lab, events, and so much more. Did I mention that there are artist residency apartments/studios as well? AWESOME! Right?
This is where my studio will be. I encourage you to come for a visit in the North West Arkansas Ozark Mountains, as there are plenty of other things to do while you are there. AND, you can stop in and visit me!
