I am an artist - which basically means I am a creative person, not constrained by labels, directives or how I should be perceived. Primarily though, I am a portrait artist, which all began professionally way back in 1977 - yup, I am that old, but in my mind I am still a teenager. My work hangs all over the world, and is owned and collected by everyone from Royalty to movie stars.
I also write. My first novel is called Ellerker. As historical fiction the research and everything connected took a little over 10 years to finish it, but boy it was worth it. I just want someone to turn it into a film now.
My baby is a character called William Shakespuss. H
