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 and working on surface pattern designs in my studio in historic Roswell, Georgia.


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