IN BRIEF: Promoting myself is a challenge. Who wants to read a load of hyped up marketing jargon? Not me - and I don't like writing it either. You want to know about the art.

INFORMATION (More than you may care to know)
At life's midpoint I'm an introverted, rage against the machine warrior woman - artist type who cherishes alone time and one - on - one or small group gatherings, and that's not going to change. I'm not accessible 24/7 via electronic telepathy and think Facebook, Twitter, and the entire Google information octopus is on the way to becoming nightmare worthy of George Orwell's imagination.

That's enough sharing for today, so in closing know that I appreciate your interest. Stay Strong, Keep Creating.

I also create Art To Wear jewelry, but sell it in a different Etsy shop, called MorningDove. Stop by and say Hello! And....
