My name is Kathryn Harper. I'm a purple-haired 50-something SAHM of a 9-year-old girl who is the light of my life. I am also an artist. Here is what I do/make/prefer:
Art: primarily abstract painting (acrylics), drawing, collage/assemblage, photography
Craft: cooking, baking, crafts with kids
Write: poetry, essay, blogging, memoir
Read: fiction (historical, suspense, mystery, literary), memoir, biography, science, history
I've lived in: Syracuse, NY, until age 31; Austin, TX for 10 years; San Jose, CA 2004-now
Spiritual affiliation: Zen Buddhist
Past Professions: Librarian; Psychotherapist; Non-profit Manager
Allergies: none to food, animal, dust, wool or smoke
Colors: I love color. My walls are a neutral beige so I can put up paintings and photos; they look best with the contrast. I have purple hair (sometimes more indigo, other times more pink). However, I also love green in all its shades. I wear a lot of purple, green, and blue. I love light spaces. We chose our house based on how much natural light came through the windows. I like dark cozy spaces also; I just didn't want to live in one.
Scents: I wear only one type of perfume, and have for over two decades: Ciara 100% strength. I am frequently told how good I smell. :) As for environmental scents, I do burn incense (stick type): Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Amber, Vanilla, Jasmine, Pine, Nag Champa. I like votive candles too, vanilla is best. I like the smell of evergreen trees and campfires. For body creams, I like vanilla.
Jewelry: I'm strictly a white gold/sterling silver type. I have pierced ears but must wear lightweight earrings. I prefer French hook type earrings.
I like all sorts of images. I like images of people, food, nature, animals, mythological beings, humorous postcards, feminist images, leftist/democratic politics, art, monuments, cityscapes, waterscapes, landscapes. I'm open to all kinds of postcards. Cathedrals and other religious structures are fine (the architecture can be fascinating).
