I was born in Santa Barbara, CA, a magical place by the ocean. I regularly spent all of my allowance at the pet store downtown. I studied Materials Engineering in San Luis Obispo and then began a slow migration eastward to the hills of southern middle Tennessee.
I learned to use a great big brush, big cans of paint and an enormous canvas painting for the theater while our children grew. Now, I sculpt and paint the animals and their spaces with the wool and sticks and images that fill my life on our farm of little sheep and little cows.
I work to share my peacable feelings of animals and earth in my work by offering the textures, the materials and the presence that I have experienced in my life here on our farm.
