This is an unretouched phone photo. FACT: I wore a Size 0. Extra Small. I only weighed 105 pounds.
I had just cycled many miles over York County's rough terrain. I was doing that every day. It was easy for me. My number age was 53, but my real age was many years younger.
In childhood I was being coached towards a professional dance career. I also cycled long distances. While making public art in the Pro Sports World, crazy men and women in sports-entertainment publicly lied about my body. They are funny.... Must be alcohol brain damage.

I am a Professional Artist who can draw an Athlete in motion, in real-time. I am NOT a sports groupie. I attended men's pro baseball and basketball games to make an original body of art

Additionally, from 1999 - 2011, I was living with my common law husband, Derreck Alexander, in an entirely faithful marriage. He attended a few games with me over the years, but for the most part, he was at work, or resting at our East Village Apartment. I am a contemporary heterosexual female artist, who also supports everyone's civil and marriage rights.
I do not tell stories.
I state facts.
To anyone lying about me:
Say it under oath.
