Born during the summer of love, 1967, in Frankfurt, Germany, I was adopted at the age of 20 months and brought to the US when I was about 3. I loved art making and art exploring as a child.
After graduating with a B.A. in Art in 1989, I then set art aside for most of the next 25 years. It's been a challenging path, fraught with jealous and insecure egos that encouraged me to hide my light.
I am now embarking on my journey back.
In all that time I took a smattering of non-credit art classes, did a few pastel paintings and two art-grant installation pieces for Burning Man events, and mostly continued to slack on my art making habits. Instead, I was a professional web and graphic designer from 1995-2006, and a certified massage therapist since (great for my understanding of anatomy!).
I am now working on rediscovering and honing my skills in pastels and clay sculpture. (I also want to do printmaking, metalworking and more.) My interest in is anatomical work. I'm also looking for a mentor, especially in sculpture.
Enjoy looking around and please let me know your feedback. Mwah!
