I have over 18 yrs of experience as a natural foods chef with one health food store. I did my best to eliminate fats, excess sugars and sometimes animal products, depending on the requirements of customers.I sometimes taught limited classes for the public to engage them with what healthy eating can be like, so they weren't afraid it's all twigs, sticks, and berries--you know, granola! I believe in liberal use of spices and herbs, and I had some great stock to draw from where I worked. Now I am beginning a new career as a professional artist. It's going to take me a while to find my patronage, but I know it will happen. I've had one gallery hook-up, and am looking for more. I established a gallery online at www.yessy.com/KarylLee You can join that site through this link. http://www.yessy.com/127687526.html This is the page for my current avatar: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39014940 I am addicted to reading, love eclectic literature and web comics,a wide variety of music. I'm into swimming and walking for exercise.
