Pearl

Name: Pearl Red Moon, cyber name - moondoll
Interests, hobbies, obsessions, perseverations etc: textile art and collecting resources for my art which has been a thirty year obsession and this includes stockpiling mountains of textiles, fibers, buttons, paints, beads, sculpting materials such as paper clay and polymer clay. Collecting art zines. Doll making, cloth and mixed media (see my website)
Year of birth: 1959
Profession, area of study, etc: Never finished the Fine Art degree as couldn't handle the social side of university (Too many people and not enough parking spaces. I won't go to places that are hard for parking I get too stessed) I was a sex worker for many years but recently progressed to receptionist in that industry after getting too old and fat.
Where you live in the world: Newcastle, NSW, Australia
Marital status, # of kids etc.: Never married. Eldest son is 24, a younger son is 22 but was given up for adoption at birth. I've been persevering in a very volatile relationship for 10 years. Realising I'm an aspie just over a year ago has helped our relationship considerably and we're now on the brink of cohabiting together. I do love him I just wish it wasn't so hard to share the same space and all that emoting stuff is still damned confusing.
