I am an artist & writer, as well as a birder, naturalist, philosopher, mother, grandmother, and more.
Mostly, I'm an incurable student & maker of things. If I'm not learning new things or making something, I'm not happy.
Because I have eclectic tastes & near-infinite interests, my writing & art are equally wide-ranging. On the other hand, a common thread that runs through all my work is the juxtaposition of unexpected things. I like throwing random-ish elements together & seeing what happens.
About seventeen years ago when my children were in high school, I began taking painting classes on a whim. Although I'd always been creative, until then my creativity had mostly taken the form of writing & music. Learning about color & design opened up whole new modes of creativity and expression for me.
I am extremely fortunate to have the luxury of my own creative space in the basement of our home where I design, create, & paint. I love the process of taking an idea & figuring out how to manifest that into a physical object. I can't stop doing it. To me, that's freedom.
