About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Fine Art Experimental Printmaker/Painter/Freelance Writer
Location New York City, NY, United States
Introduction JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
Interests Networking - about Printmaking and artists; Finding lost friends. Making new friends. Recommending art exhibits. Reviewing and commenting on events. Showing original prints and sharing information of interest.
Favorite Movies Experimental Films. PBS Masterpiece Theatre. Movies based on traditional novels, and the lives of artists.
Favorite Music Some opera, some classical, some 1960s folk music. Piano, Base and Clarinet soloists. I hope to add short videos and recorded voices to this blog.
Favorite Books Turn of 19th Century English Literature, including Virginia Woolf and Bloomsbury; Mysteries, particularly about fine art and artists; New writers. Fiction and non-fiction.

Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whittling with wood because that is what I do, among other things!
