Lesanne Pelle’ Coffin
20 years as a Social Worker. I was a counselor in private
practice for the final part of that career. My specialty was
spiritual psychology. I taught meditation, and common sense.
midlife, I decided that I didn’t know what I wanted, having
helped others determine what they wanted. I took a break,
cleaned houses, and carried a mop for a few years. During
that time, I had a dream that I was an artist. Shortly after
that, I was in Yosemite, and saw a notice for a free art
class. That was all I needed…I call it my first miracle.
I could never draw or paint before that. I
subsequently attended classes at Coastline Community
College, Laguna College of Art and Design, and Scottsdale
