I'm still working on the answer to that question!

I am a Buffalo, NY transplant relocated to Elizabeth City, NC {rural NE NC...near the Outer Banks} where I live with my husband. I just retired from teaching Family & Consumer Sciences and now dedicating myself to being a full-time artist.

I have been involved with art since I was a child...I come from a family of artists in various mediums. I have a great love of taking something whole, cutting it up and rearranging it into something different. My degree is in Home Economics Education with a concentration in clothing & textiles. I have dabbled in quilting, cross-stitch, mosaic art. In 1995 I started scrapbooking...back in the day of paper and stickers.

I consider myself a jack of all arts…mixed-media, altered art, art journaling, doodling, zentangle, lettering, scrapbooking, fabric arts, jewelry making, just to name a few. I’m a technique junkie and love learning about new techniques and new products. I’m also a techie who loves using all the various social media platforms. My biggest problem is NOT having enough time to do it all!
