Roberta Chirko has had an interesting journey from suburbia to the city to the country.
Having grown up in the Chicago suburbs, she became of the world's top models, appearing on covers of Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Elle, among other publications. She lived in New York City and Paris.
So who'd have thought she'd put roots down in rural Brown County, Indiana? But that's where she moved after she got married. There, she became a pre-school assistant and, later, the manager of the Brown County Arts Guild's gallery in Nashville, the county seat.
Like fellow model (and fellow Midwesterner) Wanakee Pugh, Roberta Chirko has found art and happiness in the laid-back rural Midwest. :-)
