I am an artist, teacher, and mother of four boys, florist, gardener, and keeper of chickens, not necessarily in that order depending on the day.

How life experiences leave a map on a face to what someone’s life has been like, how handling hard times with humor makes life livable, how finding the beauty without ignoring the ugly makes for a balanced view, and how celebrating the strange makes it not so strange anymore; these are the things that show up in my art work. I aim to make my work accessible, beautiful, and interesting to a wide variety of people, to not take myself too seriously, and enjoy the act of creating.
