|Occupation||Artist in waiting|
|Location||Santa Cruz Mountains, CA, United States|
|Introduction||After decades of crafting for gift giving and personal pleasure I am ready to take the leap from crafter to 'artist'... gulp. I have altered my lifestyle drastically to reduce overhead, (I live in a bus!) so less time is needed at the day job to cover the bread and butter. Now I am hoping to redeem the 'extra' hours creating. I have opened an etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/oblations. I have some of my art and some vintage items listed. I try and add to the inventory fairly regularly. Studio time keeps me sane. Creating is the best therapy around!|
|Interests||Creating art, watching birds, photographing bugs, and playing with my granddaughters.|
|Favorite Movies||I am more of a reader but, I like movies that make me feel good, with beautiful scenery, movies that offer hope, and make me marvel at the beauty of creation.|
|Favorite Music||Blues, 40's music, 60's R&R, Country, Classical, Ragtime, Ethnic, pretty much anything but Rap!|
|Favorite Books||Two recent favorites: The Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living, anything by Anne Tyler, Barbara Kingsolver, Sue Monk Kid, Alice Hoffman, John Steinbeck, and more who I can't remember.|
If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?
If I were a pirate, I would still be a woman. In my experience, past the age of seven only males continue to find humor in poop, farts, burps and the like! I would, however, have a hard time not laughing after letting off a good, gutsy AHARRRRH.
