A little about me...
I'm a professional artist, writer, educator and entrepreneur. I started my own wholesale custom fine art and picture framing company in 1983, and it was successful for twenty years. At present, I work as a professional artist, and I teach painting classes. I live in downtown St. Petersburg. I also work as a freelance writer for an online magazine.
Things I enjoy doing:
* creating and teaching art/painting.
* writing about visual arts in my feature in an online magazine.
* promoting my fellow artists and networking online.
* volunteering with various not-for-profit organizations.
* nature, the beach, parks, libraries, museums, festivals, events, concerts, dance, music, being with people
I'm a happy, very friendly, warm person, with a positive attitude, a free spirit. I'm kind, loving, and passionate about life. I would like to laugh with you. I'm very loyal, always in long term relationships. I've been divorced since 2005. It would be nice to find a companion. Even better, it would be great to be in love with a man who loves me. My teenage daughter has recently achieved adult independence, and she has moved on to art college. So now I am alone. I am ready for my new life adventure and it's time for me to find fun and love.
About the one I'm looking for...
I'd like to be with a man who has: Intelligence, a warm personality, good sense of humor, a positive outlook, kindness, caring about the world and other people, generous nature, free spirit. I really like living in a peaceful, harmonious relationship, no fighting and no one trying to control the other person. I would like to meet a local man, or at least within the state, within driving distance. I get a lot of contacts from men far away but don't feel that it's practical to try to start a relationship from such a distance.
I'd just like to add...
I've been able to live with my daughter all these years in a peaceful, mutually supportive relationship and I know it can be done with the right man. I want a friend and lover and to be that for him.
My Top Interests:
I'm an artist but I also love being involved in the arts, and being around creative people, that includes music, theater, dance, and literature, performing arts and visual arts.
Family and Friends
I love people and I am looking forward to making new friends. I like working with other people. I want to have more fun and make more time for a social life. I would like to get married again, for the last time.
I work a lot, and my work is fun so I enjoy it. I've also done a lot of volunteer work to help people throughout my career. The thing is to find a balance between work and play, so there can be time for both.
