Welcome to Laclede Groves
If there’s been one constant in Marilyn King’s life, it’s been her art.
Today, the walls of her house at Laclede Groves are covered with her landscapes and studies of flowers, and her love for the medium jumps off of every canvas.
Sharing her craft has helped Marilyn make a lot of friends in her new home. And lately, she’s been happily converting her fellow residents through an art class she teaches in the craft room. “We’ve been living here (at Laclede Groves) for about a year now, and everybody here is so friendly,” she says. “Let me tell you – we lived in our house for 32 years, and we don’t miss it a bit. It’s amazing.”
A place to belong, a sense of purpose, and the time to create – what more can an artist ask for?
