Without my uterus my life would be much different, as it has provided me with so much joy. Yes there has been pain and suffering, but “Joy” has won the battle. I had four beautiful healthy children, and even though one has passed on into an angel, life is full, rich, and colorful! I’m sixty three years young and raised by strong Norwegian women, I have found art to be the uniting thread to life. My mother is also exhibiting her work in this project. As a maturing woman artist, I have also taught Art for 27 years, and also continuing to give of my talents to others.
