About Me:

I have been a contemporary artist since 2003. It was then I was finally diagnosed for a long existing bout with Lyme Disease. Due to the mental and physical damage from the disease, it was a challenge to get out of bed each day, much less find my creativity. However, "can't' and "won't" have never been a part of my life. Since then, I have proudly created and sold 1500+ original pieces starting with my "Wall Dancers." I now am recycling found objects. My work can be seen at 4Art Inc Gallery in the well known Zhou Brothers Art Center. My goal is to continue to create beautiful works of art fueled by passion, whimsy and imagination.

I think most females wish they had a dollhouse if they never had one and it was a gift to my inner child. I was an abused wife for 12 years widowed when I was 31. The dollhouse was thrown into a garbage bag I lugged around for years forgetting about it living my 'new' life.
