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.

I thank everyone that entered my contest. Every single poem was wonderful , but I did have a few poems that lacked both date and number of the picture or just forgot to add one of them. Then a couple that had no relation to the pictures.

Thank you for sponsoring this wonderful contest Eve, it was fun to write for and thank you for enjoying my work so much. At least I got everything right on this one, usually though, the biggest mistake I make is I write the poem, I am excited about the poem, I post the poem but forget to enter it in the contest. : )

thanks so much for the contest and my win, Eve. I was hoping my 14 year old granddaughter would make it on, and was very happy just now to find her on the list: Natalyn Hobbs!! This is her first time to enter a contest since she started about a month ago. Both she and her mom (my daughter Angela) love to write! I am so proud of them.
