Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself. - Henry Miller
I knew I would be an artist from a young age. My first art lessons were in the Grist Mill Gallery in Chester Depot, VT.
I grew up exploring the hills, trails, barns, streams, woods, fields and gardens near my home. I was fortunate to grow up in an artistic, hands-on family. This creative environment led me to pursue a career in graphic design and then landscaping.
Friends and family have long encouraged me with the words: "You should make and sell these!" After years of making things to give as gifts, I’m putting my creations out in the world.
My artistic interests include photography, watercolor painting, and creating twig structures. Spare time is spent cooking, hiking, gardening, and observing birds. I work in my home studio in Greensboro, Vermont, and I continue to get my inspiration from the natural world that surrounds me.
There is so much simple beauty, all around us, if we only slow down and pay attention.
