Hard work through her youth at home with younger siblings and working in a family produce business, a grandfather nicknamed Johnny Appleseed, teachings of pioneer descendants a homemade green house, pet chickens, lambs, the love of family, the love of being a mother, and the appreciation of beauty of the creations of the earth are all embedded in emotions of the subject matter she chooses to paint.
