Q & A with Robin Morrow: A heart for art

January 31, 2012

Muralist Robin Morrow says she was so blessed to have a ’50s perfect family growing up.

“Two kids, pharmacist dad, stay-at-home, PTA mom who worked her tail off taking care of us and nurturing any and all of our dreams,” said the Apple Valley artist. “Dad had a talent for everything.

If you could think it, he could build it, wire it and make it work.”

The family lived in a “Brady Bunch style ranch house” in a ’60s cul de sac of tract homes in Orange County where she had lots of neighborhood kids to play with.

Syrian man finds prosperity, freedom in A.V.

APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

The thought of owning a business and the freedom to become prosperous draws people from all over the globe.

In 1980, Hassan “Sam” Chouihini, came to the United States from Syria with that very dream in mind.

“I didn’t even speak English,” Chouihini remembered. “I learned my brand-new language and the way things are done in my new un-familiar country without help from anyone.”
