Growing up I adored art, theater, and music - and had many years of piano lessons. Curiosity and a love of learning took me in many directions, and life filled up with children and family, jobs and pets, beach vacations and mountain hikes.  I took up knitting and crochet, and dabbled a bit in writing and photography.


In February of 2015 I had a shocking awakening to my own mortality.  I followed a wild hare that year and explored some art classes, and surprised myself by having fun!  I drew, colored, played - and found amazing teachers that shared their understanding of art and technique with me, helping me to grow.  My soul sings.  My art is my experience on paper, my heart crystallized in a moment, shared with the world.
