By the time our children were more independent, we were living near Philadelphia.  And in that city is one of the most outstanding art schools of the Old Academy tradition, The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Vicki enrolled and graduated from their four-year program.  She was on her way.

Ludmila builds her own world of images which are fantastic, romantic, and mystical.
