I grew up in a creative home. My mother is one of the most talented and imaginative people I know. She is an accomplished painter, quilter, seamstress and craftswoman. If she can dream it up, she can make it.
Of course, I have paintings by my mom - mostly of the French countryside - done after our trip there in 1996. She is a realist and influenced by the Impressionists as well as the Old Masters.
Recently, my mom, Mary Lou Warren, decided to show her work online. You can see - and buy! - some of her work at her Etsy shop.
