Places I Would Like To Visit
I would love to paint in India, not sure how or when I'll get there, but I know I'll get it done! All my life I've dreamed my dreams and lived them. I think this dream, among other dreams, is next on the list.
Art Forms And Cultures I Would Like To Engage With
I have a particular interest in seeing the same subject in many different disciplines. One topic/subject as seen through the eyes of a painter, print maker, photographer, sculptor etc.
I was a writer for a while and volunteered at an art gallery but now I work for an environmental organisation. My husband was a Peace Corps volunteer, we met here 5 years ago.
I really enjoy you work, would you be willing to let me do a profile of you for my blog? I have only just started it but would really like to include your artwork. If you want to check it out http://throughlook.wordpress.com. As I said, it's still very new but I am trying to make it interesting.
I really love your work, the subject matter is very interesting. I took hundreds of pictures of Blackpool pleasure beach (a bit like Coney Island) with the intention of doing something 'arty' with them but never did.
