This web site is about my mom. She was many things. She was a model (in this photo taken probably about the time she met my dad). She was a Foreign Service wife, which meant that she had to be willing to live in several different foreign countries without the normal comforts of home. But mostly, she was an artist. And to the extent that I have any artistic ability at all, I have her to thank for it. She was artistic in everything she did, everywhere she lived. However, the photos I have available to me are of the artwork she did in Morocco and Togo. I think it was her best work.

I had two great parents. Though they were very different from eachother, they had a long and wonderful marriage. My dad was a diplomat and a devoted dry fly trout fisherman. He had no artistic skill at all but was my mom's most enthusiastic supporter. I also made a web site to honor him: www.DwightDickinson.com
