I am a classically trained musician (bassoon) who loves to draw and am now retired after working as a secretary for a police department (life happens).
I have two cats, love God, reading (particularly British cozy mysteries), classical music & composers (Beethoven, Vivaldi, etc.), symphony orchestras, art (realism being my favorite) and much, much more.
I started this blog out to post my drawings of Tommy Joe Ratliff, my muse, but it has turned out to reflect how I feel, what I love and what I find interesting and beautiful. You'll basically get to know a lot about me after viewing "My World in Grays."
If anyone would like to commission a drawing from a photograph, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I'm not that expensive). See my work here or more at http://joilieder.deviantart.com/
