I’m most happy when I’m painting or building something. I use simple techniques and tools: paints and paintbrushes, scissors, tape, glue, recycled cups, spools and chopsticks. I am inspired by the unselfconscious creations of young children.

I live in southern Vermont with my husband and socially disfunctional dog. We take daily walks on our dirt road that follows the Green River. I teach art to children, who sometimes just need someone to listen.


My goal for my creative process is to make things that delight me and tell a story. I hope they will delight you too.
