I'm a polymath, a learner, a nature-lover, a reader, a mother, a baker, and a compulsive maker.
I have a culinary practice, a forest-walking practice, a meditation practice, and a daily napping practice.
Oh, and a painting practice.
My painting practice co-exists with my 9-5 work life, my friendships, my garden, and my love affair with my 1979 West Coast Contemporary gem of a home.
I paint when I can, in fits and spurts, with frequent blockages and enough moments of sheer bliss to keep me going.
I complete 2-3 works per year -- hundreds less than I wish I did.
Making makes me happy. I hope looking at my work gives you a moment of happiness, too.
