I grew up on the edge of a patch of woods in Vermont. As a young girl I would wander around the woods, pick wildflowers from ditches and collect rocks that I would put in a shoebox to tuck under my bed. I would pretend that I could talk to the animals, dress up my dog in clothes and strain my head to the moon, if I was lucky enough to have it shine down on my pillow. I was a nature child. I belonged to the Earth and the Earth belonged to me. I am now in the middle years of my life. I have traveled down a few different educational paths and professions, some of it was rewarding, but much was not. I think I was a little bit lost for a while, but I am finding my way back. I am rediscovering the joy of nature and how it speaks to me through my work. I hope you enjoy looking at my portfolio. It is a reflection of the nature child within me.

“After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, love, and so on — have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear — what remains? Nature remains… the trees, fields, the changes of seasons — the sun by day and the stars of heaven by night.”
