Thank you for looking.
Here is what has been on here for a while ~
I'm an artist, lecturer, poet. I love who I am, what I do. I love being an artist. (Knew since I was five, that I would be an artist, and it would have something to do with nature.)
Experimenting, thinking, feeling, doing. I can't imagine being or doing anything else. I love exploring, discovering... poems, shops, cafes, nooks and cranies of parks. A two-inch line of charcoal on a peasant drawing by Corot has brought me to tears. As has a Brancusi sculpture. The most amazing avant-garde edgy new sounds of jazz have brought me to the edge of my seat. I have been rendered speechless in front of a work of art, listening to astounding music with no words.
I do a lot of writing, sometimes in conjunction with my visual art. Lived in Europe, 1966-1968. I was in my 20's. Art school in The Hague. Love traveling, walking, photographing.
New York City for three years. Art, Woodstock, lots of demonstrations against the war. Participated in dance, performance art.
Taught at Universities for ten years.
Am now an independent lecturer in libraries, art centers, retirement communities. A scholar on Van Gogh. Love his mixed media drawings of peasants, laborers, the best.
