I’ve always loved sculpting which probably was why clay was a first love for me. I’ve taken to a sculpting medium that takes a small bite out of the waste stream. I started from scratch, chicken scratch to be exact. I am the artist you will see stopping her car to chase down the blowing plastic bag or the styrofoam or using the junk mail that I consider to be a free art supply delivery. I also illustrate children’s books, keep an art journal and am writing a screenplay. If I’m not doing that you’ll find me in the garden doing garden things. Please come visit.
