About the artist

I grew up exploring and imagining. I turned over rocks and collected bugs, marveled at the detail in moss and tree bark and tiny wildflowers, and sat under the bending, IMG_0858gnarled plum tree in the summertime and gazed up at its branches to find myself in another world.

I have been drawing and making art out of things for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until the past few years that I turned my attention to cultivating the gifts invested in me. Now I am spilling my art into life.

Folk music. Hospitality. Home-decorating. Warm red and golden-yellow and ivy-green. Nights around the flickering fireplace with friends on the couch and sprawled on the rag-rug, drinking tea , talking, singing, and planning for the future. These are the things that make me happy.

I have a vision to change the world through home, song, and excellent craftsmanship. I have a passion for cultivating relationships, the family culture, and reforming the arts. I sing while I work, I go barefoot, and I wear an apron and get flour on my nose.

I’m an artist.
