I am a retired designer in the social expression industry. I also own a business with my husband, Norman Drake, called Your Precious Portraits LLC. Among other things I also do illustrations for a blog Picture Diary.
Besides illustrating, I have a growing passion to write. Years ago I did an exercise to boost my creativity which was called “Morning Pages” inspired by a book called the Artist’s Way. Upon waking, I wrote three pages in a journal every morning for over six months. The exercise only required this to take place for three months. It did help my creativity.
Now I realize how much I enjoyed just writing among all the other things I enjoy. So I have started yet another blog, to sometimes write as well as illustrate. It will be interesting to see what develops.
I also enjoy sharing stories, experiences, and ideas. This is how we connect. This is how we discover our humanness and our appreciation and love for others. This is how we find joy. So if you happen to come across this blog, please enjoy.
