Heather: Did you travel much as a child or a young adult?

Audrey: (As a child) East Greenwich, West Warwick and West Greenwich. As a young adult, I went to Providence.

Maisie said let’s go the Statehouse. At the Statehouse they had (on the wall) all these places to go. (We went) in an office and they told us what to do. Maisie said “Let’s go there (RISD)”. You could go the first year whether you had talent or not.

I could see Maisie work was not good. Her stuff was so terrible. I felt so bad for her, but I couldn’t help her and I couldn’t tell her. She did the best she could. Nobody complained. The second year her name wasn’t there on the list. I stayed there and that was it.
