Have you ever heard of that Parlor Game 20 Questions?
UK artist Nathan Pendlebury has been featuring different artists on his blog. The premise of this blog is each artist answers the same 20 questions. Not only is it an interesting read, I really enjoyed getting to learn more about my Facebook artist friends.
When Nathan asked me if I "fancied a go", I jumped at the chance. What fun! What a huge honor!!!
Below is my answer to question #3.
Where were you born?
Although, I was born in Iowa City, Iowa, I haven’t always lived here. I moved 10 times before I was eight and six times after the age of 18. Places of note, Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Enkoping, Sweden, Grebbestad, Sweden, Alexandria, VA, Rochester, MN, Milledgeville, GA, Burlington, IA, and now Cedar Rapids, IA. My dad was in medical school during the Vietnam War. We moved a lot for his education. I resumed my nomadic ways after high school. My husband and I chose Iowa when our parents got old.
You will find a PDF of my interview. If you "fancy" finding out about other artists, go to this link. Thanks Nathan!
