About the Book
Re-edit in progress, but sneak look: The ceramic work of an artist that started out as a Smithsonian scientific illustrator, and went on to teach art at a college level. Then became a newspaper artist and page designer for newspapers in California and New York. She was a book cover designer in Long Island with more that 60 covers to her credit. But today she is retired and spends her time working free hand in clay with students and other ceramicists at Diablo Valley College in the East Bay of San Francisco.
I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted blurb.com books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.
