Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I am an artist, photographer, writer and dog lover living on a little lake, on the edge of the woods, just close enough to the big city to attend gallery openings and eat my favorite greek food.
I am a wife but not a mother. My husband and I have a 12 year old boxer named Findley. I am a nemophilist, one who is fond of the forest and a haunter of the woods, a procrastinator and a storyteller.
I have spent more than thirty years as a professional nanny, helping people raise children to be kind, creative, healthy, communicative, caring, smart and authentic. I am also an artist and writer.
My most recent series of artwork is doodles on found objects, like vintage truck doors and hoods. I am currently working on a series of mobiles that will accompany my middle grade novel about a ten year old girl who discovers art gives her strength and a voice in a world she can’t control.
