INFORMATION
My name is Marilyn D.F. Boire. I have a BFA in sculpture/3-D art, but also paint (oils, watercolor and mixed media). Like most of us, I have been writing poetry and short stories since childhood. I consider myself a contemporary artist/writer/poet focusing on daily life. My work may be biographical, but mostly comprised of observances, comments and imaginings. My aim is to write with clarity. My pen name, BeasPeas, honors my mom, Beatrice, who also wrote poetry.

Originally from New England, I relocated from Idyllwild, CA to Plover, WI in 2013 (by long way around, having lived also in New York and Tennessee). I have two wonderful kids, a son and daughter. I'm an animal-rights advocate and a vegetarian. Thank you for reading. Marilyn

I've been a little busy lately and not on the site every day. I've been pet sitting my grandpets, so I'm running back and forth a lot to their house. They're so cute.

BeasPeas: Hi all,
As you may know our wonderful 'Picture This' club leader and originator of the club can no longer be our leader. She has moved on to happy things and hoped someone would take her place for continuity. I've decided to do that function. If club members have any suggestions for the club, please e-mail me. Have a great day. Marilyn
