Guest Conversation with Roberta Lee
Here is a little about Roberta from her website (http://www.robertaleeart.com/):
“I was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and moved to California in the early ’70’s, living in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Cruz, then returning to Bucks County in the mid-80’s. I sold my first painting at age 16 and have made at least a portion of my income as a working artist ever since.The majority of my paintings use subjects very close to my home–in many cases, literally in my backyard.
I began writing even before I began painting. I am currently completing a series of related novels collectively entitled Suburban Sprawl. My novels all are also set in Bucks County, albeit in a rather surreal version of the area. My fiction uses plots as simple as a soap opera to explore some very complex themes, and I enjoy juxtaposing those archetypal plots with offbeat humor, a glaze of sexuality and a touch of the paranormal.
Another life-long interest has been Tarot and I Ching. My guide to reading Tarot cards, The Language of Tarot, is the culmination of over thirty years of work with the Oracle.”
