About Me

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.

Comment: Your ATC is really cool - I can't figure out the background, if it is printed or if you somehow made it yourself, lol! Thank you also for the very thoughtful extras. I hope your knee heals quickly!
Response: The background is printed; collaged of two types of cells with the green digitally added I'm sure.I thought they were cool but have no idea what kind they are. I'm glad you liked it. Knee healing nicely, thanks.

Comment: Thank you so much, Elaine, for the wonderful Twinchies you made! I love them. Thank you too, for the nice chatty note, I really appreciate that you took the time to do that - I just got home from visiting my son post surgery, and your package was most welcome. He is okay, but I'm exhausted.
Response: You're welcome for the twinchies. I'm glad they brightened your day a bit. By now I hope you're rested and that your son is healing well and quickly.
