"I am in architect, mother of three, and constant doodler. I work part time with a construction company, I do residential renovations and additions, and I have an entire line of cards that I can't get out yet because they are just not right....but soon, someday.
My mother sold the house I grew up in several years after my father died. She said a house needs a family. My brothers and sister were already married and I was living a fun life up in Cambridge, so she had a point. I drew a pen and ink picture of our home, made copies of it for my siblings and we all cried. And then I started doing it for friends in book club, donating to the kids' school, and so on and so on. Most everyone I have worked has a great story about the home I am drawing- good memories past, present or future."
