Through the months and seasonal changes of 2022, I explored one word,
My weekly blog posts for The Evergreen Journal, focused on the theme.
This article completes my year.
I discovered beauty and worth on the 3-steps of The Evergreen Stairway. See the articles:
Stop – Look – Listen.
Each step is practical and easy to remember.
I am sharing this INTERVIEW from 2019 by SMASHWORDS.
This short interview gives you an idea of how I developed my plan of action for creative significant projects, I’ll share a brief description of the three areas that influenced my working life in the arts and literature.
I am a visual artist and an author of five published books.
What was I doing for many years prior to my full-time writing career?
Presently, I am a retired college professor of fine arts and humanities.
My teaching expertise is in poetry, studio art, art history, and non-fiction writing. I work across disciplines in my professional life and taught an interdisciplinary approach in higher education. I hold three degrees in Fine Art and English.
What did I do prior to teaching?
I am a former executive director of a community museum and art center in western Pennsylvania. This position gave me valuable insight into the business side of the art life. I managed two mansions, two carriage houses, and properties at The Hoyt Art Center (Previously The Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts.)
Before my tenure at The Hoyt, I worked as a grants specialist at a California college. There, I turned my academic training into marketable skills that are useful for the rest of my life.
My work at two colleges and an arts center put me on the solid ground of being accountable and gave me a strong work ethic.
What does my Creative Life Look like?
