I am Manitou Artist who grew up in Wildwood, Illinois and moved to Colorado to attend UNC. Here I studied theater, focusing on directing and set design. My artistic career morphed into being a fiber artist and I traveled to art festivals around the country. Currently I focus on creating transformational feather masks, feather jewelry and transformational Nature photographs. I am a published author and can help others get published. I love to hike, use essential oils and enjoy the amazing local talent displayed by our diverse theaters and talented musicians. I am inspired by the beauty of the world around me and want to share my vision of a more sustainable world in writing, art, helping others and leading by example.
I have coordinated Commonwheel Artists Labor Day Art Festival for many years. In 2009, with the help of many volunteers, we made it a more sustainable Festival (80% waste-free in 2012).
I sit on the Boards for Commonwheel Artists Co-op and Manitou Springs Art Council.
