Do you know how dang hard it is to write your own bio?!?

Well now I do.  So I am going to pass on a secret. I hired someone. Luckily I have a great friend that is a professional writer. Her name? Adrienne. And her capabilities abound. Here is the result of the pieces that she put together for me which embody my personality to the fullest:

And I can tell you she really came through for me so if you ever find yourself in need of a bio or anything else that is on her list of your needs then I say don't think twice. 

See! Now you know someone as well!!

Blast from the past

Came across some of my very first creations on Dollie DeVille's Rockabilly Socialite blog from when I first began painting all those years ago.


Dollie's whole blog is pretty entertaining with interesting as well as informative info. And she even has some great tips on how to get the best results for your retro hairdo!… very handy info indeed…
