Eavesdrop on conversations with dear friends as we trade stories of surviving & thriving.
I hope their journeys inspire you as much as they inspire me.
“As much as I’ve loved my proximity to the spotlight, I’ve never
wanted to tell my story and be at the center of attention,” wrote
Ingrid. “Like the best folk music, I wanted to sing the stories of
other people’s lives.”

What People Are Saying About The Conversation Series
“Hello, Ingrid – I read a lot; some say incessantly, but that’s not really true. Even so, I have rarely read something in my email inbox as immediately interesting and then captivating as your short piece. It was more than interesting; it was also inspiring. It made me think of writing about my experiences. So I look forward to reading more from you and your loved ones, your creatives.” 🙂
– Walter Ritter
“Bravo. I am with you.” 🙂
– Gayle Haerring
“Your writing is inspired and that’s half the battle. Carry on. Carry on.” 🙂
– Kevin Moyle
“I am writing to say you are a wonderful inspiration to many…💞Now through your communication I get to see a whole different part of you on the creative side and experience a small sample of what is in your soul. Seeing your message today makes me want to step out that door and try… Respectfully,”
– Linda Jenks
“Your words are a tome on aging. It is easy to quietly slip into inconsequence as we become more like the rock in the river – well said. However, vital aging can be sustainable and must be sought – good for you!”
– Dave Ward, Wigan, England
“Ingrid’s art communicates what’s in our mind’s eye, with a voice that cannot be heard — only seen.”
Margery Fischer Winter, Vogue Editor
Ingrid Croce’s collage landscapes revel in the richness of life intensely lived.
Croce’s signature pieces emanate from the domestic and extraordinary. The sweetness in the bitter fruit, road music on a car radio, a hummingbird determined to survive. From Capitol Records to New York’s Museum of Folk Art, Croce’s signature art pulls from seventy-two years of memory to explore love, loss, and above all, the music that saves us.
“Each piece is a journey,” said Ingrid. “My intuition leads me. I never know where I’m going to end up.”
