Finding Joy Through Creative Exploration

When I was four years old, I knew I wanted to grow up to be an artist. I was standing in front of "The Green Fiddler" in the Marc Chagall exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago when the idea first struck me and it was one that I would never forget.

Now, many years later, I am an artist.
I have seen art exhibits in museums all over the world. I hold a Bachelors of Fine Art from George Mason University and here I am working every day, living my dream.

I draw inspiration from many things. primarily nature, but also the history in the things that we no longer need or want, words:their meanings both implied and inferred, the lost tradition of story-telling and the meaning that we draw from metaphors we create in our lives. Most importantly, I draw inspiration from the world as seen through my children's eyes and the ways in which motherhood has completed me. My kids teach me new things every day. They teach me to see with eyes anew. They teach me joy.

My favorite mediums are fine silver and bead embroidery and painting.
