For Skysinger, joy and challenge often go hand in hand. She finds joy in working with cloth and thread, in writing, in exploring different perspectives of the world, and in creating stuffed "creatures" for her grandchildren. The challenge to improvise paths through life's problems and difficulties is but another aspect of her art. She lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan with her husband.Review:
