I’ve been a lot of things in my life; wife, mother, grandmother, entrepreneur, business owner, writer, publisher, educator and activist, but I’m an artist by birth.
My parents were artists, so being an artist just made sense to me. I think, for most people, when you grow up with an artist, artistic expression naturally comes easy to you. It hasn’t been my lifelong pursuit, but I’ve used art in everything I’ve done.
Having lived on both sides of the aisle, so to speak, I’m able to offer a unique perspective on highly charged topics that affect each and every American, giving a voice to issues that are seldom spoken about publicly.
My artistic objective is to draw attention to the dark side of American bureaucratic policies, to shine a light on those areas that need fixed and to inspire people at a grassroots level to recognize that we don’t need the bureaucrats; they need us.
It’s time for us to stand up and realize power-crazed bureaucrats and politicians, otherwise known as “public servants,” work for us. We pay their salaries and we demand they start acting in our best interest, not just in the interest of their agency, their party or themselves.
Beyond that, I like action movies where the good guys win. I love listening to Chopin. I generally read the last chapter of a book first. And, if you need to know, I have a cat who thinks she’s in charge of everything…and probably is.
