I am an artist, writer, and teacher, which I see as kind of all-of-a-piece. I am passionate about art (in its many forms), education (in its many forms), animals/the natural world, and the power of thinking and imagining.

Favourite Visual Artist
Myself! (and I'm modest, too!) I also love many others' work.
Movies that take me interesting places, and show them to me through the eyes of interesting characters.
Favourite TV Shows
For fact-based shows, I love well-made documentaries. For fiction, I like shows that take me interesting places, and show them to me through the eyes of interesting characters.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Brought up to love classical music, I have added many other genres and styles--I especially love instrumental soundtracks.
In fiction, SF and fantasy are always a good bet as favorites, but I also love a good mystery.
Lois McMaster Bujold, Richard Florida, Jim Butcher, Naomi Novik, Don Tapscott, and many, many others.
Chess, Pictionary the way they do it at sf conventions, and story-building games (one person starts and the next one adds to it, etc.)
Favourite Gaming Platform
Sorry--I'm a total troglodyte when it comes to gaming.
Tools of the Trade
I would go mad without Canson papers, Elmer's glue, my sculpture tools, my ink pens and markers, Prismacolors (and electric pencil sharpener), paints, and computer loaded with the Adobe Creative Suite and a good word processer!
Art, education, writing, animals (from information about them to working with them), environmental issues, and aspects of healthful, harmonious living.
