The eclectic nature of my collection seems to be a reflection of my life. I have lived in many places (Michigan, Switzerland, Australia, California, and Africa), held a variety of jobs (executive assistant in advertising and law, an immigration legal assistant, a preschool teacher, and a Peace Corps volunteer), and met many people from all walks of life along the way. All of these experiences have shaped me into the person I am today and are reflected in my artistic efforts. I hope that you enjoy browsing.
