Lee and her husband moved to Orange Beach from Slidell, Louisiana about 10 years ago. “At the time I was caring for my husband who had sustained a spinal cord injury from an on the job accident in 1999,’’ she said. “We lived in Orange Beach together for five years until he passed away.
“After being a full time caregiver for 15 years, I didn’t know what to do with my time,’’ she added. “I started doing different arts and crafts and eventually began doing coastal art. Last year’s Foley Art Center’s Annual Trim a Tree was my first public sale event, but I’ve learned a lot, found new self-confidence and thoroughly enjoy my artsy life. ‘’
