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, I have been juried into regional, national, and international exhibitions.


When my feet hurt from journeying, you can find me sculpting in my studio in historic Roswell, Georgia.


I dream to own a ranch in New Mexico, drive a turquoise pick up and have a dog named "El Cid". I am obsessed with ghosts, cacti, snakes and the third eye.
