I'm Rita Mae. No one calls me that anymore, but I would like for you to call me that! I would really like to get to know all of you individually and hope this blog will be a way for you to get to know me.
I am an artist, designer, writer, creator, dreamer, mother and grandmother. I have raised six children alone as a single mom. I have two sets of twins and my kids were all born within 4 years, so they are close together to say the least!! I am enjoying grand kids now though! They are the inspiration for my artwork and I absolutely love to illustrate in a style that reflects the 30's to the 60's. I just think it was a simpler, more relaxing time, don't you? For those of you who are too young to remember that time, follow along with my illustrating journey and you will see how wonderful it was.
I started this illustrating journey late in life , although I have been illustrating most all my life. I wish to ultimately publish a children's book, one of the many things on my "Bucket List".
Thanks for stopping by and come back often to see what I am up to next!!
