I am a late blooming artist who discovered the gleeful joy of art at the age of 53. It could not have happened at a better time. 

Each piece of art, each illustrated book and story has been a unique journey of discovery and connection. 

.Creativity provided me a way to not only transform grief and trauma but to also share the lessons so many others have taught me over the years.
I am delighted to share them with you.

I  worked in the field of trauma and abuse for thirty years. The thousands of people I worked with were my best  teachers...more than the classes and books. Their wisdom and amazing resilience in the face of trauma and deep grief inspire all that I create and do.

I also am inspired by my family and those I have met in the last ten years as our family dealt with a series of losse​s and traumas that  transformed us .
