I'm an art instructor, owner and director of Artful Gathering Online Art Retreats, and I'm an artist. My favorite artistic subjects are nature, people and animals. I love them all equally!

My art passions include mixed media, folk art, and sketching. Mostly I like to take what's inside my head and express it with my own two hands. What comes out is always a surprise to me, and almost always a thrill. 

When I am not busy doing something creative, I’m spending time with my husband, my kids, or my two awesome German shepherd dogs Sascha & Ruby.

Go Around Again is a phrase from a book in the Dr. Seuss library called Go Dog, Go.  My alter ego is the dog riding on the Ferris wheel shouting to the ride operator, "Go Around Again!" When one finds what they love to do in life, and they pursue it with passion and gusto, it's like a glorious ride on a colorful Ferris wheel.  The skies the limit.
