I created a new character inspired by the space needle called “Seattle Sam” last year & decided to post it. I’m working on a whole series of him/her!I have a child-friendly version too called “Lil Seattle Sam” & “Lil’ Spacey”.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about this wild ride called life and all the different jobs I’ve had to support me and my true love…ART!
My favorite jobs were…
1) TWA Flight Attendant ~ Wow, did I LOVE that job. It suited me perfectly because I love people…I actually love serving people & love talking with pretty much everyone ! Where else on earth can you find a job with so much diversity? I also love the sky & clouds and I love to travel! I had plenty of time off to make art & play…it was perfect! Sadly, we were laid off.
2) AMERICA’S MOST WANTED TV SHOW ~ Yes! I was a “Hotline Operator” for AMW. I am a child advocate & have tiger mother instincts when it comes to protecting children & always watched that show for that reason. When I heard they were looking for operators & I jumped right in! Met John Walsh a few times at the studio & Xmas party… what a wonderful, kind man he is! I absolutely love him! I know you can see me on one of the old re-runs. It was a great job but after a year I had to quit because I was getting too depressed…you really need a thick skin to listen to all those horrible stories. I am just too sensitive.
3) ANIMATION ~ I love animation! So much fun! I worked at Mill Valley Animation, painting Gary Coleman, Smurfs and Pac Man cartoons & on the movie “The Plague Dogs” , painting cells, old style with Nepenthe Productions. They were the same people who made “Watership Down”. I loved it & I absolutely love cartoon & animation people! Most animation is done on computers now! BooHoo!
4) WORKSHOPS & PAINTING FACES ~ I have several workshops I’ve created that combine art & movement. My biggest passion…I love to dance & paint! Eventually, I will be offering my “SOUL TREK” dance trance & “CANVAS DANCE” art & dance workshops in Seattle. Face Painting too! I can’t wait to paint some faces! YAY!
I am thankful for all the great non-art & art jobs I’ve had that have supported me to be creative. I’m learning now, how to animate my characters & hope to have them up on YouTube asap!
Thanks For Visiting!!
LONG LIVE LOVE
I DO believe
That LOVE …
WILL SAVE THE DAY!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
LONG LIVE LOVE!
