The ArtScene Backstage Award
Recognizes extraordinary service to the arts through behind-the-scenes efforts.
I did not get an early start in the arts. Growing up on a farm in the 40's there wasn't time for art. My Mother was a very creative woman. Having a hat making business and also being an accomplished seamstress, I saw many ideas turned into objects. I don't know how many people have said it, but the ARTS are the one universal language that all people respond to. I enjoy making things that people respond to.
