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

I enjoy reading and discussing ideas about art, philosophy, film, literature, etc.

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".

It's hard to improve on your definition. I would say that that the creativity moves in both directions, and for the artist, mind and hand are in some sense the same thing.

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

I've been teaching and writing on film, literature and the visual arts for several decades. Yes, I would be interested in helping to plan events for the group.

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

I hope to learn what other artists are doing with their own work, especially in the area of word/image interrelationships; I hope to collaborate on sharing ideas and projects with other artists, particularly writers and filmmakers.

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

Fiction and screenwriting are my current, major interests

Introduction

Professionally I have been teaching film and literature at a local university. My main interests are in writing fiction. I am currently working on a screenplay
