I'm a new media consultant battling a dominant magpie gene and invasive breast cancer. And sometimes I just can't help but make art.
A woman who is interested in everything, I grew up on the banks of the Niagara River less than a mile from Canada, then spent a decade in the Philadelphia PA area before coming to Washington DC.
My bio page says "After work with various media outlets and directing art for a manufacturer, Susan shifted her focus to painting and independent projects while raising a family."
What that really means is that I worked in public relations, design and marketing in the government and corporate world; and taught studio art while juggling children and corporate wifedom. It was a lot like tap dancing while twirling flaming batons.
The children can now cook, use power tools and use the right fork. Though somehow I remained out of psychiatric hospitals I do not claim to have managed this unmedicated.
Using the bloggosphere, twitter and other social media I work with others to help them achieve the same sort of buzz about their projects and services that was generated for such things as my participation in an Traveling Flat Artists - a takeoff on the Flat Stanley books and artistamps from my imaginary Empire of Ephemeria.
All proving that even the most offbeat idea can work to bring attention to what you do in life - or in virtual reality.
