Growing up, I always wanted to be an artist, but it just wasn’t considered “practical” by the adults in charge. I was allowed to take art lessons in Mrs. Carter's basement after school, but when it came time to apply to college, art school was off the table. So I was packed off to higher education for a couple of degrees I could make a living from. I lived a lucrative corporate life for many years, but something was just, well, not quite right.

Eventually, I started drawing again, as my creative spirit was not to be ingnored. Before long, I fell in love with hand-lettering. My notecards, prints and calendars were soon born, and things really started heating up in my little studio in the woods! I now live a fuller and more authentic life with my wise and wonderful teen son in the middle of the woods, joy-fully making art whenever I can.

And here we are. Wow! Thanks so much for stopping by...
