I'm a retired biological research associate (fancy title for bottom rung jobs), I've loved the subject of biology since high school. I live outside the KC,MO area but have lived and traveled to a lot of places in the US. I love art and have been drawing and painting when I could but besides a seminar here and there have had no formal training. I have time now to explore and I am! I am awed by the patterns in nature and nature itself. I try to keep my brain engaged by taking one class a semester at my local two year college. Classes are free for seniors and I only take classes outside of the subjects I had pursuing my degree. It's fun and shows the younger students it's never too old to learn! And I love ATC's...and other paper art.
