2018


I am so excited, and honored to have won a Merit Award for my painting at the annual "Possibilities in Pastels" Art Show at the Stirling Gallery in Dunedin. 

I am finally realizing the career I always wanted since I left Miss Taber's class and went directly to The Chicago Academy of Fine Art for two years.  Following that I worked in various jobs, mostly in marketing or sales.  Now, finally, I am enjoying my encore career.  Not so unusual for many our age.  Retiring is not an option.

2013

I currently work for Palms Apartments for seniors. I am a Leasing Consultant and love working with people to find them a wonderful home with all the services, like transportation, meals and housekeeping. I may need it myself one day. I don't have any plans to retire for at least 5 more years because I'll still be younger than most of my customers.

I still have 3 brothers in the Chicago suburbs. The other 3 siblings are all here with me in the Tampa Bay area. All of them went to Bogan.

The photo above is me at Christmas time at my sister's beautiful home in Clearwater.  The other photo below is of a pastel portrait I did for my boss. This is her daughter, Chloe. I do these portraits for friends and family and advertise them a little on my "MySpace" site. Anyone can contact me at www.myspace.com/flartist.
