An early childhood memory I have is watching a crayon melt on a hot, old fashioned steam radiator in my bedroom. I was completely entranced by the luscious red wax melting fluidly toward the door like a sentient being. This love of color later translated into painting in oils, and more currently, in weaving and printmaking. I also seem to have a rooted connection with texture and just a great enjoyment of finding and creating shapes.
Art gives meaning to my life and is my way of both grounding and being connected to spirit. I taught art for 22+ years at K-college and have worked as an Art Therapist. I currently devote my time and energy to my art.
