Throughout her life she maintained a passion for art and creativity. Many of her pieces were invited to hang in galleries across the country. She shared her passion with her family by teaching, sharing ideas, and often helping to create projects. She loved painting, decorating homes, and encouraging bold creativity. She inspired many of her children and grandchildren to pursue hobbies and careers in creative arts and music.
