About me

Occupation Artist and Writer
Location Norway, ME, United States
Introduction Welcome to The Gossamer Tearoom, a Tearoom of the Imagination...Please join me here to relax and enjoy fun discoveries I have made or new creations I am working on! I regularly host imaginary teas where I select teas and pastries that have enticed me. I'm interested in food, art, writing, selling vintage items. This is a place which celebrates my light side and my dark side too. A little bit of creepy has never hurt anyone! Close your eyes and imagine yourself in an English garden by moonlight or a French tea salon under a wedding cake ceiling and opulent chandelier. This imaginary place is a quiet place of peace, of art, indulgence in teas of our own imaginings, of music, of light and of dark. Please enjoy your visit here!

You've broken up with your old band and are about to release your first solo album. Please write the liner notes:

During the demise of my band The Jello Eaters, I was desolate. One night, while bathing in my giant teacup-shaped bathtub, a swirling, glowing swarm of fireflies led me through the garden and into the labyrinth, until in the center I found a small package and inside was a tiny macaron. I ate it and instantly found my new identity and the name of my new band, "Pastries of Contentment".
