I’m a creative gal living and working in Texas and the author of ImagineMechanix. I’m also the mother of one very brilliant male child (naturally, I’m biased); an owner of cats; a cultivator of gardens; a knitter and crocheter, a writer and artist; an avid film fan; and a sometimes chef.
I have a Master of Humanities in Literature and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and design. I’m a marketing propagandist by profession.

My favorite artists are Henri Matisse, Gustav Klimt, Joan Miro, Edward Hopper, and David Hockney.
I have many favorite authors; a partial list includes: Jane Austen, Graham Greene, Herman Melville, the Bronte sisters, George Orwell, and George R.R. Martin (Finish the series George!). I have a very strong preference for British literature.
Classical music that moves me to tears includes Mozart’s Requiem and Beethoven’s Symphony #9. I also enjoy the work of Saint-Saens. I like a variety of contemporary musical artists. Lately, I’ve been listening to Broadway musical productions. I’m also really fond of Big Band, Disco, and contemporary dance music!
I prefer British films to American films. British TV programs are better too. I’d be lost without the BBC and British dramas and comedies on PBS.
