COVER ART: RED HEADED WOMAN by Lois Simbach “I have been painting and drawing Women’s Portraits for several decades now…. perhaps as a means of recording our look in modern history.  Or, perhaps that it’s just what I do? My background and love of fashion design adds to the contemporary experimentation of my style. Upon returning from four years of caregiving my parents, I am now renovating a one-hundred-year-old warehouse in downtown Marshall for my future home, studio, and showroom.” loissimbach@gmail.com blog — www.simbachdesign.com facebook — lois simbach
