Across cave fires in the time of the ancients.
across crowded supermarket lanes today.
The message is the same.
I understand what it means to be a
I understand because I, too, am
Maybe you are all of these roles
And I am simply one or two
By blood or choosing it’s no matter.
We are sisters
Not because we understand each other.
But because we are each other.

Art has always been a priority in my life; I never decided to become an artist, it seems I simply always was. I create art because I must. A nighttime painter, I work when the moon is high in the sky and the world is quiet. It is in these few stolen moments of solitude with my brushes and paint that I create on canvas, but I am continuously creating in my mind. I paint pictures and write stories and poems in my mind long before I commit them to paper or canvas. I have juggled art and writing for many years, giving in to the pull of each as it comes along. I also enjoy creating jewelry out of found and natural objects, (most recently being tiny glass beads, corn kernels, and shells); sewing; reading; knitting; teaching art; playing with my son and drinking coffee! Mmmm, coffee…
