Biography



 

 
The first stage of my life was figuring out what the heck I was put on earth to do. That took me from Michigan to Baltimore, then to Boston and finally Keene, New Hampshire. Like many artists, I wasn't sure I was good enough to actually be one.
 
Then came motherhood. Wanting so much for my children--wanting them to be fearless in life, to be their authentic selves--made me realize I should want that for myself, too.  How else would they know what that looked like??

Then came the life-learning-stage. Being an artist helped me be a better mom, a better martial artist-wall climber-horse rider-writer, a better person in general. And vice versa. 
 
Still learning. Still loving what I do. Still loving what people say about my art.
