I love art and I have always loved art! As far back as I can remember, I have been drawing , painting, and gluing everything I could get my hands on, mostly lead by my curiosity. I had to take a detour from art for quite a few years, and during that time I worked "real jobs." I walked dogs, cleaned, did dishes, cooked, waited tables in an Italian restaurant, and took care of elderly people in a nursing home. I went to college in Idaho where I mainly learned to play tennis and became an emergency medical technician. I then became a mom (probably the best job in the world). Finally, I got my bachelor's degree in counseling and worked as "second in command" in a huge day care facility. The last seven years of my counseling career was spent in a homeless shelter in Denmark where I worked with homeless addicts and mentally ill people. In between all of my jobs, I traveled, too. Finally, in 2007, I could let the paint hit the paper. I enjoy every minute and feel very privileged.
Take a minute, relax, and enjoy my art. Maybe it moves you!
