I am a transplant from the east coast. Lived in New York City 20 years, lived in Philadelphia, Trenton, NJ, St. Thomas, VI and many many other places. My passion is creating, creating in any medium, but specialize in pastel and oil. In the late 70s, early 80s my business was metalsmithing in silver and brass. What most people like about me is my humor, and I don't take myself too seriously - unless it's called for.
Five things I can't live without:
Art - music - excellent food - laughing - and creating my own works of art. Eclectic interests keep my mind active, I am liberal in beliefs, have no prejudices against any one or thing living or dead. Love classical music, opera, Celtic music, almost all types - except Rap. Italian and French food is my favorite, but really like it all. Lastly, I'm fairly well traveled both in the states and Europe. Speak SOME Spanish, still learning.
Motto: The most precious thing about life - is having one.
