Originally from San Diego, California. Professor of Visual Art for 26 years at the following Universities: San Jose State University; University of Nevada, Reno; Weber State University, Utah. Full time artist, see information on Linked In. My husband, son and I are living in the United Arab Emirates since 2009. Originally I did a Fulbright grant for one year at United Arab Emirates University. Then we stayed on to teach for 2 years. We have two more years on our contract. We are simple, clean, minimal travelers. Prefer authenticity to resort atmospheres. We are not smokers, nor excess drinkers. We like a pool for cooling off, clean, comfortable beds. We eat healthy, so good food, not a lot of processed foods or meat. We are very independent and want to get around to see things. The room will be for night time.
