If art isn't your full time profession, than what is? What other activities and/or hobbies do you enjoy?

I teach High School Art. Other than working and working in art I like museums, walking, nature and photography. I am a film buff and loveall kinds of music but Blues, Jazz, some Folk and Celtic along with Gershwin are my favorites.

We are curious as to each persons definition of "What is art". In a few words, give me your definition of what art is to you. Our definition of art is "a spirit of creativity that flows from mind to hand".

Art is beauty and truth.

How long have you been working as an artist? Would you be interested in helping plan events for this group?

My whole life - age 10 to 64. I work full time but if I have time I would help.

What do you hope to learn and share as a group member? What are your future goals? What is your current age?

Friendship with people that speak my language. Inspiration to keep up the pace of doing my work. Networking about studio space and having people to go to art exhibits with. I am 64, but consider myself only middle-aged.

What kind of art do you do or make? Do you need help with beginnng or finishing a project?

I use wood that I cut into shapes then paint with oils and also use charcoal on them. I do get someone to help me with the cutting of the wood.
