About

I have always been an artist. But in order to do that I have also been: a factory worker, a gallery watcher, a secretary, a reader-driver, a dorm coordinator, a newspaper carrier, a night watch at a rehabilitaion center, an apricot processor, and a nanny. These have been great life experiences to add to my art. I lived in the outback of the Southern California desert for 25 years, raised goats, made baskets, formed an artist's cooperative and have spent the last 10 years in civilization making a name for myself. Now I am back in the desert house in the sticks and am focusing on my Art only. I love the open desert, it recharges my creative batteries to go there. I am 45 minutes from the nearest Post Office, and can only ship out items once a week. Usually on Monday or Tuesday.

I am 62 years old and have retired from my part time jobs to persue my dream. I am in the process of relocating and building my new studio. I have learned about selling online and Etsy gives me a place to put all of my playthings so they don't take over my house, which is the same size as my studio. Plus my cats don't think I am smart enough to figure out a way to make a living without leaving the house, and I want to prove them wrong. Slowly but surely, this is starting to work.
