How do you make a living?

I am an emerging Artist. After a long career in Advertising and Marketing, I’m using my creativity to create for myself, not for others. I recently returned from Los Angeles from StARTup Art Fair, where I was voted by the attendees as 3rd place Best Artist. WOW. They liked me, they really liked me. As a “senior” I say it’s never too late to pursue your bliss! My art is on Instagram, and you can also see some of my work at The Eclectic Chic Boutique at 547 Bloomfield Ave.

Coffee, tea or … ? Coffee with Almond Milk

What’s your idea of a perfect weekend day? Resting, thinking, reading and creating in the winter. Better weather gets me out of the house.

What’s your favorite local restaurant? Love Koreander and Plum

What’s on your nightstand? Too many books. I just finished The Woman in the Window. Great thriller! I’m usually reading at least two books at a time.

What are you listening to? My own advice.

What are your current indulgences? Art Supplies. Can’t have enough.

What talent you would most like to have? Better organizational skills!

What’s the worst-kept (or best-kept!) secret about Montclair? There’s always something to do here.

What do you hope they say about you at your funeral? She made me laugh.
