My education is in Respiratory Therapy as well as a MSW degree from Loyola University school of social work. I retired 7 years ago after 42 years caring for others. After retiring I wanted something to occupy my time so I took some art classes. I did line drawing and color pencils. I am now teaching myself some acrylic, pastel and watercolor. I am a mother of three, grandmother of six and a great grandmother of one.
