Yucaipa, CA (Inland Empire of Southern California)
I am a young-minded senior mentor, advocate, and activist for physically, developmentally, and emotionally physically challenged adults and children. Sometime in the late 60's, my younger and only sibling came home from Vietnam 100% disabled, and it gave me the heart to do this work, which I have been doing ever since.
I am also an activist for anti-bullying of any age or race of person. I pretty much say what I think and think what I say; no game playing or untruths here. I am the editor of a book filled with the writings of the lives of 23 physically challenged fiber artists, Artful Alchemy: Physically Challenged Fiber Artists Creating, and also Pumpkin, Pumpkin: Folklore, History, Planting Care, and Good Eating. The second book is in its 3rd Edition, and is currently being revamped to include a paperback. I have two children's books awaiting illustrations and final formatting and editing, and I have a book on quilt history awaiting my time and attention when the others are completed.
I am a professional artist in mixed media, urban art, and fiber arts, and I have had my own businesses and careers most of my life.
