All defined within the construct of a family, one which now has lost those two central people who created it. Fortunately my sister had two daughters and so the family continues. My nieces were close to their grandparents and absorbed much of those underpinnings directly, as well as through my sister and perhaps a bit of me.

We each have a story defined by family, religion, community and our life experiences. We also absorb the experiences of our family as if by osmosis, not always realizing the source, but absorbing the message. As a reader I have always valued story, it is the focus of my artwork and my writing.
