"I continue to try and capture those special memories of childhood that we can all share. Hopefully the stories I tell will trigger at least one personal memory for you, of your family or your own childhood days.
Rediscovering those special times in our lives should help to brighten up each and every day ahead ~ and remind us to let our hearts ~ Be Forever Young!
In the attic of every grownups head joyful memories of youth are safely tucked away waiting to be rediscovered. My art attempts to light the way."
