*I’m a self-taught painter. (I have painted every day for the past seven years.)

*I paint watercolor florals with my right hand and mixed media abstracts with my left.

*I’ve worked in some form of public relations for over 30 years

*If my car had a bumper sticker it would read “I brake for coffee!”

*I’m an avid reader. Favorite books include: Our Lady of the Lost and Found, Confederacy of Dunces, A Gentleman in Moscow, The Thin Place and Our Souls at Night.
