I was involved with HopeArts starting in 1996, first as a member of the Arts Council (a group of organizers and thinkers) and later as the gallery manager.
I have been a calligrapher for 38 years and taught calligraphy for 30 years. I have also been a writer for almost as long. Wow, sounds like a long time when you write it down.
I'm married to a great ceramic artist, the Scary Potter, also known as Rick Van Dyke.
