Mentors maybe our parents, spouse, children or friends. Certainly we glean much about life from them but my true mentors have been two incredible women who came into my life during a personal struggle. Both have taught me to see life in a new and exciting way. Gayle has taken me on a journey to discover my deeper self and my strength. Marcy has helped me see the light in life through painting and how to find my true passion. And both have taught me to laugh!
"More than mere teachers, mentors are often emancipators, freeing artists from poor technique, clouded vision and personal uncertainty." - Paul Soderberg
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit."- Albert Schweitzer
