I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grateful friend. I am also an artist and a teacher. I run my own after-school art program for children and conduct various workshops and classes.
I was born in Montana and grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I earned a Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, then worked in art museums and the art publishing field. Becoming a mother dictated creating an occupation closer to home, and my current and best job was the result. I like all things art and frequently become obsessed with projects.
I currently live with my tolerant husband and children in Mahwah, New Jersey.
