In the beginning, my mother taught me how to draw and paint and encouraged me along.

I look back, as a girl, I was led by my mother who is a long time woodwork artist - who until recently made a living building, carving and creating art into one of a kind collectible furniture.
(Nance Schaefle and Estelline O'Harra - C W Pickets, Portland, Oregon.)

Art was and still is a normal activity in our households. After returning home from Germany, as a woman Veteran serving in the US Army - Art was a very helpful integrative activity. Later, attending "Intuitive" painting classes with Outi Harma as the instructor inspired me further to explore during the pandemic. There is always a way to do some art and stay mello.
