Shirley Louise-May is a post-50ish neophyte artist who's main love is words. A scientist of 25 years, a mother, a breast cancer survivor, an Ironman triathlete, a CrossFitter of 10 years, and a writer. She has been blessed to be surrounded by artists most of her life that have encouraged these amateur starts and taught her much. She gives a shout out to the Covid lockdown and its many silver linings.
