Driftwood dreams…

From the beginning her twin passions were drawing and horses.

Her hero was Leonardo da Vinci.

She was a disruptive student…even kicked out of school

and told she would never be an artist.

Heather Jansch perservered…with pluck…courage , a dream

and oodles of beach detreitus.

…and a strong belief in her abilities.

I dreamed of becoming an artist living in wooded foothills with clear flowing water at my doorstep and horses grazing all around”

Dream a great dream….

Then make it happen.
