My name rhymes with "Lisa,"
I live in Midland, Texas, because it's warm
and the mortgage is cheap.
The EGE--The Ever-Gorgeous Earl--is my husband of 36 years.
I have the best job in the world:
I call up artists
and ask them a bunch of nosy questions and then write about them.
I write, I blog, I podcast, I stitch. In my spare time, I do it all some more.
You never know exactly what you'll get with someone when you call them up for a podcast. Oh, sure: there are the people I already know, people I've talked to before. Then I have a pretty good idea that they'll be interesting and entertaining. Other times, though? Sometimes I just wade in blind and hope for the best. With Jill, it's always easy, and I know I don't have to work too hard: I know I can just ask her what she's working on now and then sit back and let her take me on some fabulous adventure. She's never, ever boring, and she's always up to something new. (I think living in the same house with her would be exhausting, but it would be fabulously fascinating, too). This month she's preparing a new workshop where she's going to teach students to copy other artists.
Yep, that's what I said, too.
Click on the player below to find out what she's thinking here, and then go here to see her new-and-improved website and find out more about that fabulous give-away she mentions. Yowza!
