Inspiration

I take inspiration from many sources, often finding ideas and insight during morning meditation. I love nature and am equally fascinated by human invention. From marionettes, to the human genome project, to the periodic table, and semaphore flags, they all speak to me. Perhaps they will speak to you as well.

Gratitude

I owe a huge debt to my husband, Paul. He has been at my side during this entire journey, encouraging me, loving me, and building whatever I need. Thank you, Paul. To our children and my very close friends - you are the best. I could not have done this without you. Your constant love and support has sustained me for many years. To my friends in the Dayton art community - your generosity, help, and guidance gave me the courage to start making my art again, thank you. Lastly, many thanks to my new-found Cleveland friends-in-art. I appreciate your warm and inviting welcome. Your talent inspires me to do my best and think outside of the box each and every day. Thank you all.
