Heidi Lung

Heidi Lung

Local Haunt: Tiffin Avenue

Hometown: "Born in Quincy, Illinois and grew up near Davenport, Iowa.  St. Louis has been my home since 1995."

Favorite Book/TV show/Movie: "I love to read everything from historical non-fiction to comic books.  I also love movies -- especially scary ones.  I don't have cable, so I'm addicted to PBS and the show Medium." 
Best Thing About Ferguson: "My husband and I are both from small towns in Iowa, but have lived in cities for the past ten years.  We originally wanted a home in the city until we discovered Ferguson.  We were both overwhelmed by the neighbors who took time to welcome us into the neighborhood. We moved in last May and love getting fresh food at the Farmers Market over the summer.  Moving to Ferguson was like the small town feeling we grew up with, with the added benefits of St. Louis -- diverse restaurants, museums, and cultural events.  Oh, and don't forget the Whistle Stop!"
Favorite Way to Spend a Day: "When I'm not working at the St. Louis Art Museum, I spend time making my art, which includes writing and drawing comics, sculpture, and more recently SOCK BUDDIES, as seen in the Stareway Gallery on Church Street."
 
Fun Fact: "I bake my own bread....without a bread machine!"
