•.Art is a constant in my life. But what does an artist do for a retirement plan?
"I did some reading about financial
planning and used my creativity to figure this out. By giving a piece of land
1 inherited to a charitable remainder
unitrust, 1 reduced my taxes and
arranged to receive income every year
for the rest of my life.
"At the end of my life, Carolina's art
department will use my gift to provide
travel funds for graduate students. 1
want to provide a mature student -
whether she be a practicing artist or an
art historian - the opportunity of
travel at a critical time in her career.
"My travels have given me subjects
to paint, a preference for intense colors, and a world perspective. 1 enjoy an
active lifestyle combining my interests
in art, teaching, travel and people.
"I'm not a wealthy woman, but this
works for me - and for Carolina."
