What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Fluid, sensual movement, safety, warmth, comfort, cheese, and my dog
|Pecan, Greg's Shiba Enu|
Wannabe know-it-alls who slaughter the English language (or any language) with nothing to back it up but FAKE bullshit! Do you think I know someone who fits the bill?
I always wanted to be a chef. I love to cook and eat!
What is your favorite book or movie?
The series Six Feet Under is my all time favorite.
|Cast of "Six Feet Under"|
I have to have my House music and my Black Diva vocals. Whitney is high on my list (no pun intended).
Loyalty, honesty, and tolerance (of me).
Name three artists whose work has influenced your own or whose work you most relate to.
Gustav Klimt - just because

|Georgia O'Keefe, Jack in the Pulpit|
Marlene Tseng Yu - intuitive organic and monumental work
|Marlene Tseng Yu (See her website)|
Anselm Kiefer - for his monumental textural paintings/sculpture with a gritty beauty
|Anselm Kiefer's work for Monumenta, Paris, 2007|
What is your idea of earthly happiness?
Working in my climate-controlled studio all day long, going home (maybe I'm already there) and making something delicious on my Viking range (6 burners with double ovens), and then sitting in front of my 60" flat screen TV.
