About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Musician / Fabric Artist
Location Vallejo, California
Introduction I'm a fabric artist, professional musician, free-spirit, and flaming liberal. My passion is making art quilts and experimenting with all kinds of fiber art and fabric dying and painting. To fund my passion, I work as a free-lance pianist, organist and accompanist. I've enjoyed 31 very interesting years of marriage to the most wonderful man on the planet, and I'm looking forward to at least 31 more! I'm a bleeding heart for abandoned, abused, and otherwise damaged cats, and have a herd of 24 rescued furballs sharing my life, and another 25 who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I advocate simple living, sustainable lifestyle practices, women's lib, animal rights, vegetarianism, gay rights, outsider artists, freedom for Tibet, liberation of the Schoenberg Twelve, freedom of choice, same-sex marriage, Pagans, saving polar bears, dolphins, whales, Yellowstone wolves and Alaskan wolves, ending global warming, stopping continental drift, and I think Donald Trump is the only dope worth shooting.
