Living in rugged rural Nevada proves to be a most perfect setting for the creative process in this my fourth year of retirement. I spend my time volunteering, writing, taking photographs, and creating pieces of art. My written work and photographs have been published locally Community Living Magazine on the Nevada Magazine and on the state level. I participated in Reno is Artown last year and have been invited again this summer to sell my chiffon art scarves. It’s a prestigious and game changer opportunity! ! I am also participating in the 2019-2020 Nevada Arts Council’s new Basin to Range Exchange Project. It is an intentional urban meet rural collaboration. For volunteering my favorite role is sitting with my 93 year old neighbor for respite care.
