A paradox of definitions...I give a lot of hearts.
I've been a mailart artist/participant for more than 10 years, have pieces in museums in both the US and abroad, teach "the joy of painting" painting to willing students, and am a very grounding force with a huge mock-up for the freedom for all people to experience love.
For the other half of my brain, I work 60 hours a week as a Tax and Legal clerk. My great escape is Mary Kay, and without my Mary Kay business, I would go insane and drown in depression.
I respond to email at dangerine at gmail dot com before any pm's here.
