About meOriginally from Arkansas, double major in Theatre and English at the University of Arkansas. I worked as a Costume Designer/Costumer in Los Angeles for about 20 years, then returned to school for an MFA desgree from University of California, Irvine. Then I taught at Troy University in Troy, Alabama, for 16 years. Now retired, painting, and reading.

About my libraryMy general interests are theatre, history, art, philosophy, languages, film, gardening, fashion, costumes, New Mexico, genealogy, and, of course, reading. I guess my specific interests can be gleaned from my library.
I started drawing as a kid, copying the art of Hendrik Willem Van Loon and he is still one of my favorites.
