Bloggers Photo



Eve Roper grew up in Texas, where she developed a love for art.

At twenty-one moved to a small town in Oregon with her family.


Living in Oregon she opened her own small business in signs and oil paintings.


At thirty-eight went back and attended college in Early Childhood Education.

Taught Prep in the Catholic Church and worked in the schools for sixteen years.

After developing a tumor, on the left side of the brain she decided to quit working.


Ten years later she started painting and writing poetry.

She resides in Texas with her loving husband, children, and grandchildren.




My husband wrote my biography  to place in the back of my books, since then he has passed. In memory of my beloved husband and soul mate of thirty-eight years this is the biography I will place here on PoetrySoup.

Hello everyone, this is to notify those who have entered my contest “Free Verse or Rhyme Poetry in Its Beauty Poetry Contest’.  I have received 15 entries so far. These poems are well composed, except for a few that fell to use one of the pictures for a prompt ; if I cannot see any inclination to show me it was written about one of the pictures it  will not place. But if you did use one of the pictures please write the number of the picture at the bottom of your poem.


 1.  2.
