Susan Givens' Profile
Dad had been offered a position with Walt Disney Studios in the late 1940s. As I think back, he probably turned it down because of his loyalty to his father's business. He should have packed us all up and headed to California. It would have made a great difference in our lives because he was an excellent artist. I was always astounded at what he could draw.
By the time I was ten, I had set up my own art "studio" in a corner of my bedroom. I had a card table, two small baby food jars of water, a couple of brushes and the most wonderful shiny black metal box of Prang watercolor paints. I loved painting the black-and-white comic strips from the newspaper. So dad is responsible for passing the artistic DNA to me. It has been a wonderful gift. Thanks, Dad!…
