School Story

I married Terry Drum when I was only 18 and we moved to Chapel Hill for him to attend undergraduate and Law School. Two years after graduating law school we divorced. I moved back to Chapel Hill with my two boys and went back to work with the University and started going to school part time. Five years later I met a wonderful man, Pac McLaurin, and got married. We have been married for 35 years. We moved to Virginia in 1985 for him to go into private practice (Cardiology) and I went back to school fulltime and received my BA and MFA in Visual Studies from Old Dominion University. I then, with some friends,opened an art gallery in the Fan District In Richmond, Va. where I was the part-owner and manager. In 1998 my husband retired due to health reasons and we moved to Valle Crucis, NC where we lived until a year ago. We decided that 92 inches of snow was too much so we moved back to Chapel Hill, NC in 2012. My art continues to flurish as does my grandchildren! I have been fortunate that I have shown my art in the United States as well as internationally. Life is good.
