She was born in the early hours of the first day of 1945 in Houston. Her mother, Catherine June Pemberton Venable painted a deep red lipstick on her baby lips, since it was a festive night.

Being a fabulous action photographer, she participated to extensive overseas trips, on behalf of Museums: Alligator hunting in Cajun Bayous, precious stone mining in Brazil, archeological excavations in Bolivia and Peru.

Europe did not escape her curiosity. She studied Italian cuisine in Tuscany, residing in noble families castles as a special guest for many years. She also worked with the “museum du nouveau monde” in la Rochelle, France.

 

In 1991, she accepted to sail out of New-Orleans with a couple of friends to Cuba as a galley Chef. She was travelling with her cat Gato. The boat took a last stop on an Island of Yucatan, Mexico, Isla Mujeres.

She decided to stay and lived nearly 3 years, perfecting her Spanish skills, doing photography jobs for the local tourist industry.

 

In February 1994, she fell for a passing international Musician, Patrick Rodriguez AKA Anda Loup.
