    In my retirement, I've embarked on a late-in-life journey as a fine artist painter.  At the age of 60, I am fueled by a passion that lay dormant for decades. Life's demands led me away from the easel in my youth—raising two girls, and completing a fulfilling career as an elementary teacher and principal.  Yet, within my heart, the artist's spirit persisted, patiently awaiting its moment.

    My great-grandfather, a masterful painter, and my father, also finding his artistic voice in retirement, wove a legacy that resonated within me. Retirement became my second chance to embrace the artist spirit within me.

    Driven not by acclaim but by a desire to leave behind a legacy of joy, I paint with urgency. Time, an ever-fleeting companion, adds intensity to every stroke. I aim to capture the overlooked beauty in the everyday—a flower's delicate petals, a sweeping landscape—to weave moments that endure.

    Painting is my lifeline, a distraction that helps navigate life's challenges with hope. In vulnerability, I find strength, and in the completion of a piece, a reflection of my journey—a tale of resilience, love, and the enduring beauty of the human spirit.

    In the beautiful dance of colours, I've found solace. With gratitude, a heart full of passion, and the undying hope that my art will inspire, I paint, creating a tapestry that speaks of embracing dreams at any age. This late-in-life artistic pursuit is more than rediscovery; it's a testament to the timeless truth that, indeed, it is never too late to breathe life into the dreams that have always resided with my heart and soul.
