When I am not drawing for the news, I love to draw the horse., which incorporates all the elements that intrigue me… anatomy, movement and gesture, as well beauty and the power of an expressive pose.

My current interest is developing my social media and youtube show which will “star” myself and a hand puppet that I sculpted and created, named “Pookie”. Through filming, video editing, script writing, and acting…Pookie and I will teach art, as well as incorporate humorous skits. Pookie is a… possum, who thinks he is a great artist. In the tradition of Soupy Sales, and Sherry and Lambchop, we are ….”Carole and Pook”.
