I love to make things and as long as I can remember, I always have.
Growing up in a lively and large family, home life was loud. We traveled frequently, often in a car and an army surplus tent; we learned to explore and love many regions and cultures.
My college years were spent in Boston and San Francisco. My early studies in Textile Design continue to influence my work with richly textured and patterned surfaces. I have worked with collage and mixed media for years and recently discovered encaustic, which finds it’s way into more and more of my work.
I collect maps, photographs and found objects using their reference points in my work. I love to travel and have called many places home. I moved to Boulder, CO over 25 years ago. I make my home with my husband and 2 sons, without question, the best things I’ve ever made.
