When I was younger and much more innocent-much like this portrayal-my deepest desire ws to be a fashion designer in NY and just live the LIFE! wow how life gets away from us one day at at time! But I am glad,because I am ME unique and crazy shaped by every experience I have. I am an artist -I do not live in NY but on a beautiful island in the south(go figure?) I have a marriage of 33 years and and a husband that knows the girl in the mirror( I was only 16 and fresh from NJ when I moved to the south and I caught his eye.) He knows my dreams and always supports my art. I am not a fashion designer -I take care of people affected with Dementia and Alzheimers- a tribute to a Father that took care of my mother who at age 59 began having strange memory loss =dieing at age 70 from Alz. Would I change it? nope not for a minute -BUT I still think about that NY dream now an then..and I paint!!
