I've been an artist of one sort or another since I can remember. It's not what I do; it's who I am. So I've spent most of my life following what's interesting or beautiful or touching. I've lived in big cities and tiny hamlets, apartments and remote adobe houses. I've had more cats than I can count. When I'm not painting, making jewelry or writing books (5 so far), I'm doing embroidery, belly dancing and playing in the SCA.
