I like to make things. I just can't seem to help myself. I know, it sounds like an addiction. I like to work with just about anything, once I have a vision of what something can become. I love the way creating something myself changes up the way our space feels and the way I feel about myself. When I look at the walls and see images my husband captured, and I have recreated into a piece of rustic art or old furniture I've dragged home and now it is showcased in our bathroom, it feels good; it grounds me in a way that I simply don't have words for.
For many years I taught kids from kidergarten to third grade and art played an important role in my teaching. It often bridged the gap for struggling students and gave more advanced ones a new way to soar. Now I am retired, and it is time for me to play!
