Spent many years teaching at community colleges. Eventually went back to school and became a library cataloguer for the last 15 years before retirement. I have always dabbled in art in all its various forms. Now I work entirely on the computer, drawing with the mouse. As for icons, I have always been attracted to them long before I had any understanding of them. I am very grateful to see my church (Catholic) begin to use icons once again in its prayer and worship.
