Born in California 1962. Some education acquired at Palomar College in California Asbury College in Kentucky , Sorbonne University in Paris & Escola de Bellas Artes in Barcelona. I would note here that Asbury is a Christian college. I was not a christian when I was accepted there, and by the time I left, I had a much clearer understanding as to WHY I do not believe. Widow of noted mathematical Vlad Mitlin & mother to his second daughter. Artist (plastic arts), expatriot living in southern France.
