Jenny and Gregory DeGorsky are a husband and wife team who have been pursing their dreams for over 30 years.
They shared their first adventure upon the great Atlantic ocean. Back in 1986 while cruising separately on the ship S.S. Norway they met for the first time, and amazingly within four days were engaged to be married. The love story was kindled by a twist of fate if you will. Originally, Gregory was not supposed to be on the S.S. Norway rather he was booked on another NCL cruise ship with an entirely different destination.
Jenny had planned to be on the cruise with her mom to take a break from Michigan and drift away to enjoy some time on the ocean, and fun in the sun. Gregory, having traveled on many cruises before, was with his friend who happened to work for NCL planned a trip months in advance. In reality Gregory was scheduled to be on another cruise ship though upon arrival the day of the trip had found it was overbooked and had to change cruise ships. Greg said, “After rushing to change cruise ships we got down to the very minute before the S.S. Norway was to leave port. I remember rushing up to the gang way with bags in hand thinking to myself this is crazy. Then suddenly I looked up to get a glimpse of the ship I was to board and behold at the top deck was this girl in a white dress with flowing black hair. It was like I didn’t even see all the other passengers waving good by as they were getting ready to depart. I will never forget that first image of her emblazoned in my mind.” Truly an amazing story formed upon the great ocean seemingly hand crafted to come together through intriguing events.
Raised in Sterling Heights, Michigan Jenny has been pursuing creativity in many ways. Beginning with a career in hair styling she quickly found success. This success, in a sense, was cut short having met Gregory, getting married, and deciding to have a family right away. After a many years and opportunities, Jenny found herself at Boca Raton Museum in Florida selling products and deepening her knowledge about art. Today you can find her at the Detroit Institute of Art in Detroit, Michigan where she enjoys selling products around special art events such as the recent Monet exhibit.

“I enjoy watching my creations evolve over time whether it is a painting, story writing, or thematic score.”

Palmetto Park road just two blocks from the beach in Boca Raton, Florida.
“It was a great experience to live a dream we had imagined over many years. During this time we focused on various artistic expressions some of which are available through Artrooster.com. It was an experience we can cherish forever.”
