A Trailblazing Mother, Wife, Mimi, Artist, Friend. Connie Rose was a ferociously strong single mom in her early twenties. She climbed the corporate ladder without a college education, becoming one of the highest-ranked females at her company. Retiring at 59, she embarked on a new path, finding her true passion for painting. Now she spends her time in painting workshops, working in her studio, and enjoying life with her husband of 40 years, friends, and family.

Painting. When I paint from my heart and can feel it coming through me, I feel I transcend to another place.

Always look for the best in people, and that’s what they will give you in return.
