I'm an art therapist, studio artist, and art educator. I am attracted to all things art, design, creativity, culture. I fought to include children of all ability levels in the same school and now fight to include these young adults in the community. I am currently working on 12 pieces for a solo exhibit. I like books, but am not a bookworm. I like thoughts, but am not an intellectual. I like to exercise regularly, but am not an athlete. I take voice lessons, but will not be on American Idol -- well maybe sing with a jazz quartet in a dive lounge someday.
