I was born where the winds blow and the flowers grow, wearing black eyeliner.

I grew up loving the unexplained and talking to beings "not there".


My explorations took me to Philadelphia where I earned a BFA in Printmaking/BookArts.


I traveled far and wide to learn all I could about other cultures and sacred places.


For the past two decades, my spirit has been making appearances in galleries and museums nationwide.

I am currently pursuing my MFA in Ceramics at Fort Hays State University.


When my feet hurt from journeying, you can find me sculpting in my studio (Cowgirl Studios) in historic Alpharetta, Georgia.


I dream to own a ranch in New Mexico, drive a purple jeep and have a dog named "El Cid". I am obsessed with ghosts, birds and junk.
