Yes! Attending Reunion

After grad school,I was a fulbright fellow in South America,and traveled a lot over the years to further my artistic endeavors.Taught at several colleges/university,grants,and exhibition of my work.My partner is also an art professional/ sculptor.In our youth, we bought some abandoned buildings in a very rough part of town and began the revitilization of a mill village that is now known as an arts area.It took many years and in the process we opened an art gallery that has a great national reputation.We have done several public art projects and we both continue to exhibit our work and have a presence as arts activists.6 years ago,I had life altering event that left me learning how to walk again.I was given another chance and I try to remember that in everything i do.
