Once upon a time there was an "imaginator" who was born and raised in the city, but imagined one day when she was grown up that she would pack up her truck and head for the wild frontier. That day came, but fearing delerium caused by being snowbound and lonely in Montana, she chose the wild frontier of the Hudson Valley of New York instead. Dreams started to come true for her.

The imaginator imagined a future on a small farm with a little cottage, and little children, and little sheep and goats, with a big garden. She imagined that she spent her days as a bohemian farmgirl tending to all the creatures and growing things, while inspiring people to grow into their own dreams through art therapy. So, the imaginator went back to school. One day, halfway finished with school, another dream came true. The imaginator discovered that she would indeed be a mother. And so this is where our story has taken us up until now. See what happens next as the imaginator becomes a full time magpie artist and mother.

Like a magpie Bohemian Farmgirl collects unusual objects, vintage and natural. She is particularly attracted to handspun wool yarn, cotton fabrics, sticks (especially driftwood), rocks, vintage anything, beads (especially turquoise), old barnwood, leather, feathers, bright colored embroidery thread, and bits of paper. You will find these objects scattered around her home and studio, currently located in Manhattan.
