Name/Place of residence/Occupation/Hobby?
K: Katherine, Tampa, Florida. I am an elementary school media specialist. Hobby: reading! What a surprise.
A: My name is Andy, Tampa Florida is our town. I’m an environmental consultant and my hobby is politics.
K: Not the same politics, sadly.
Do you collect anything?
K: Yes, I do. We collect sea shells since we live in Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. We have a lot of beautiful sea shells. I collect tea cups myself. I have a lot of cute little tea cup things. Not creepy tea cup stuff but nice tea cup stuff.
A: I collect rocks, minerals and shells. Not many, but just really nice samples. Things like that.
If you could invite any artist to dinner, who would it be and why?
K: I would pick Mary Cassatt. I just love her work: French Impressionism, it’s just amazing. And she’s from Philadelphia too.
K: He has a nice print in his office.
A: Yes, I find it very inspirational.
If you could steal any artwork in the world to have up in your house, what would it be?
A: I wouldn’t do it.
A: I saw some sketches that Picasso did at the Guggenheim that I thought were amazing. I’d like to have that collection just to look at.
What’s your favorite tool?
K: My KitchenAid mixer. I’m a big cook, a big time cook.
A: I have a lot of different tools. My 6 foot stick tape. I use it for work. You can use it to do some rough surveying too and a lot of site stuff.
K: Not a very romantic answer.
A: Plus my garden edger is really nice.
K: That is a good garden edger, that’s true. EBay, we got a good buy on that one too. Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
