I love the arts and always have. I am 57 years old, a self-taught artist, poet and writer. My first job as an illustrator was in 2012. As a poet and writer, I have also been able to instruct adults writing serious stories and poetry for the first time. I also taught calligraphy classes thirty years ago in adult classes. Now, I am putting together my own coloring books as well as writing children's stories that I hope to submit to magazines.
