1. If you had to begin a different career, what would you do?
I know this sounds crazy...But I have always wanted to be a waitress at a super fun restaurant.  I never have been one...but thing I would be good at.

2. What’s your most prized possession?
A newspaper article of mine when I was in 2nd grade. I won a contest...for my explanation of what I wanted to be when I grew up.  It said I wanted to be an ARTIST. It also mentions my father who had passed away from cancer at age 5...and that he would be proud of me and my talent.  I have it hanging right in the front of my studio.  Years later...I haven’t changed it... It makes me feel like my Dad is watching over me.

Cocktail- mojito. Everyday- Classic Coke.

A clothing line.

8. Biggest regret?
Not pushing spell check before I send a mass email.

9. Cause that you’re most interested/involved in?
I am actually working on creating "Timree Treatment" classes.  A few of my customers are fighting cancer and they say that art is very healing.  My goal is to teach FREE classes for cancer patients and bring a sense of happy to them....rather it be in my studio or in the hospital.  I have a saying..." I wish I could sprinkle glitter on it and make it all better".....I think I can a little when I put a paint brush in their hand.
