“About me” is just silly. I’m an old woman who’s lived a life full of the kinds of adventures that if I told you, you’d think I was making them up.

A cross between Zelig & Forrest Gump, in terms of where I’ve been and whose paths I’ve crossed, places I’ve lived, glamorous jobs and quotidian servitude….I’ve enjoyed the unfolding and the looking back.

I have credentials in a lot of things, including writing (always) and art (for the last twenty years).

I’ve won awards, enjoy thousands of collectors, and have probably pissed off as many people as I’ve charmed, so, while sifting through the archives, this is where I’ll post thoughts, and occasional images of my own art.

Thanks for looking — and — if you’re one of my collectors — thanks for feeding my family!
