And, some other information:
  • Primarily, I am a visual artist and have interest and experience in many media. Lithography, etching, photography, mosaic, collage, typography, film, and digital techniques are all integral to my art making process and progress. Growing live art, AKA gardening, is my current obsession. The art of cooking is another great love and practice of mine. Though work and art keep me very busy, I also enjoy pinochle, cribbage, Scrabble, yoga, hiking, body surfing, traveling, and spending time with my husband, child, and our families.
