I like to think of myself as a Renaissance woman. I can cook a meal, sew a dress, grow a garden, debate about a book, understand politics, write a story, build a cradle, understand technology, weave a rug, troubleshoot a computer, give a dog a shot, identify useful herbs, chop wood, make perfume, and of course, make art. I'm currently obsessed with paper and love making gorgeous things from such an ordinary medium.
I'm currently based in Houston, so most of my approaches to art have the "can it stand the humidity" question as one of the first to ask. I also like the look of things that are "finished" so my pictures tend to be matted so that they will be easy to frame.
Take a look around and see if there is anything you like. Drop me a line, and I'll be happy to talk about my work (until you are completely sick of hearing about it).
