The small seacoast town of Magnolia, Massachusetts was a great place to grow up. I was the oldest of six children. My Dad, a natural storyteller, saw that trait in me and encouraged that ability by introducing me to the theatre.
My primary interests in life lean toward the arts, writing, theatre, painting, and pottery in equal measure. I’ve been a potter for thirty years, acted in many plays and skits and performed my own stories in various venues. I’ve taught painting, watercolor and acrylics, and shown my work in galleries and shows. Writing is a compelling art and blends with my love of performing for an audience. I rotate my focus between these four interests and find that the creativity always stays fresh.
In my early twenties, I moved to British Columbia, Canada. I have two children and live in a town surrounded by mountains, edging a huge lake. The community here is teeming with artists and it is easy to find inspiration. Having lived by the sea, and now here in the mountains, it is not hard to retain a sense of wonder and magic. My goal is to funnel that sense of wonder into my art.
