- About BLAHG:
- Rantings, Musings, Irreverences, Relevancies: Caveat Emptor. Sincerely. Blahg began on April 21, 2007, and was originally published on my web site. Exactly one year later, I moved Blahg here to WordPress.
- About Me:
- Visual Artist: working in handmade paper sculpture, book and installation arts, and drawing. Sometimes I am a curator /juror, and occasionally, I write things (other than the Blahg).
- Day Job: Currently, I am an independent artist/ educator. I have been teaching Book Arts classes since 1991, and Papermaking (specifically, sculptural paper) since 2000, in both academic and community settings. From 1994 – May 2009, I helped to build and run a facility that was dedicated to an open, innovative approach to the book and paper arts in Chicago; and taught in an interdisciplinary MFA in book and paper arts program there for thirteen years.
- Severe hearing loss: I use two BTE hearing aids, and read lips very well.
