Compulsively creative, I love ideas. I love to start new projects, learn new skills, and up-cycle found materials. I scour thrift stores for bargain art and craft tools/supplies. I collect broken ceramics, costume jewelry and other glittery objects, much like a magpie, for use in my art. Nature is my go-to source of inspiration and re-energization. Weaving and book-making are my current passions, and reading is my super-power.
