About the Author

Ida P. (Gibson) Leggett was born March 5, 1916 in Victoria, BC, Canada, and married J. Edwin Leggett. Together, they raised three children. Ida & Ed were married for 54 years until Ed's passing. Ida was a pioneer in early childhood education from the late 1940¿s, and held a passion for writing, especially for children. An avid hiker and nature lover, Ida was passionate about her her faith, things of nature and in the sea, and she loved to explore. She spent most of her life on the West Coast of Canada and the USA, and the sights and sounds of the coastline often formed a platform for her poetry. She authored over two dozen books. The family moved to Redwood City, California in 1955. Ida developed numerous educational programs with an emphasis on science & the environment, and taught at exclusive private schools on the San Francisco Peninsula. In the early 1970¿s, she and Ed moved to Santa Cruz, California where they designed, built, and directed their own Preschool & Daycare Educational Center, which was licensed for 60 children. Upon the sale of the school and into retirement, Ida & Ed traveled extensively to the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Sweden and Israel, as well as throughout the United States & Canada. They moved to Union, Washington in 1980. Ida passed away Oct. 12, 2005. At her request, her ashes were cast to the wind over her beloved Western Washington.

Anne Shultis-Gregory was born & raised in the heart of the Catskill Mountains in Roxbury, New York, where there were more cows than people. Country living influenced her love of nature and a knack for creating something from nothing. Anne cherishes the rusty, the overlooked and the small things in life. A rich career in marketing communications & investor relations provided ample creative outlets, but Anne longed to sit behind the easel. She picked up her paintbrush in late 2013 following the unexpected death of her brother, Ernie. A missionary, he had followed his passion and Fully Relied On God. As Anne mulled over life priorities at Ernie's funeral, she was prompted to follow her own passions: for art and for people. If Not Now, When? Anne has an impressionistic, painterly style that is injected with a vibrant color palette. Her intention goes beyond creating pleasing pictures: preserving the glowing feel of God's hand in the fleeting moments of day-to-day experiences. She hopes that her work will bring joy to others. And she directs all praises to God, from whom all blessings come. Anne lives in the greater Houston, Texas area with her husband, Michael. Together, they have raised two awesome sons, Taylor and Blake.
