A very eclectic mix of: 30 Seconds to Mars, Chevelle, Dean Martin, Staind; Rob Thomas, Pavarotti (Opera); Accordion Music, Ukulele Music,Blues Harmonica, Breaking Benjamin, Rolling Stones, Patsy Cline, some songs by Slipknot, Bluegrass Music ...
Dexter, White Collar, Psych, Southland, The Office, Closer, House, Human Target, Glee....the show Community is also one of my absolute favorites. Something I've also started to watch is America's Next Top Model; I am fascinated with the 'behind the scenes' part of making the models - the makeup, hair, scenery, photography...just having to watch those bratty personalities of the contestants is a bit tedious though!)
I am in Southern California, with my husband and teenage son. I work full time as a government drone, and teach art / crafting classes at night, plus design beading and craft patterns and tutorials. I am also owned by two dogs and five cats (five, way too many, but that last one was a little orange tabby kitten that showed upon on the doorstep!) I read any chance I get (books from the Library bag sale, so I never know what I'll find, but generally I'll read it all nonetheless...!) I like fishing and bicycling as outdoor things to do. I like gadgets and electronics, and video games like Guitar Hero!

With feathers so dark
and a mind so bright, crows will fly
up into the night.
While looking down they will try to see
where they can find an opportunity.
In search of friend and in search of fun,
busy they will fly whether moon or sun.

I am an artist who loves bright, colorful graphics and working with mixed media, collage, inks and paint. I also love a mix of humor, reality and impossibility. Some of my themes may not suit everyone....such as my Boneyard residents.
These are some of the clowns in my circus:
