About the Book
“Searching for Warmth” is a journey through downtown Minneapolis from the Cancer Memorial Park to the Walker Art Center’s Sculpture Garden, with a few stops along the way, as a long harsh winter teases with moments of warmth and melt. Hints of spring arise and falter, leading us inside the Cowles Conservatory to shelter from a new blast of arctic chill.

The most important things in my life are family, art, food, and the constant drive for knowledge and personal growth. For over two decades I have been a working artist in Minneapolis, MN, with a variety of mediums. Among other things I am a graphic designer, photographer, filmmaker, writer, and fire flow artist. I have a passion for food as a photographer and ameteur home chef, with a focus on whole foods and vegan cuisine. In my free time it would not be unusual to find me cuddled up with a good book, whether it be a tasty cookbook, a piece of fluffy fiction, or heady non-fiction. I find Joss Wedon brilliant, and would gladly hop a police box, were it to materialize in my general vicinity (a girl can dream).
