Creative director: Graphic design, copywriting, and development of websites projects. I’m also a comedian, specialized in the “Alternative World,” and I’m writing an “erotic-conscious” novel.

At the age of 103, Margaret Ricciardi still prefers to paint on her feet.

As her classmates at CUNY’s College of Staten Island splash color on canvases while seated, Ricciardi eyes her art from all angles.
