I am an artist coming from an artist's family... ALL of us! Musicians, visual artists, photography,animation ect., as well as a hearing dog trainer. As for myself, I'm a now middle aged child of the 60's... outgoing and enjoy cooking good food with friends and going out to hear good music and going to museums. Chicago has that and more. I haven't been here in years so I want to enjoy it instead of picking up a leaving right away. This picture is from about 2000, w/my father, who was from Chicago. I'm afraid I don't have a more recent picture, but I look the same.
