NPR interview

March 31, 2009 at 4:16 pm

I got interviewed! By NPR! How cool is that?

(NPR is National Public Radio, the radio analogue in the US to the Public Broadcasting System on TV.)

Unfortunately it wasn’t about what a great artist I am, though they did at least mention that I am an artist. Hey, it’s a step in the right direction.

In fact it was a short segment about doing taxes on your computer. They were looking for someone who’d prepared their taxes on the computer for the first time this year, and I raised my hand. “Oh, oh, pick me!” So they did.

You can read a transcript or listen to the segment here. The link to the audio is right at the top, where it says “Listen Now”.

It’s only a few minutes long (my bit is in the first half). If you’ve been dying to hear what my voice sounds like, this is by far the best recording I’ve ever heard. Listening to it didn’t even make me cringe like I usually do when I hear myself. Now that’s cool!

Barbara J Carter

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
