About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist/designer
Location Cape Elizabeth, Maine, United States
Introduction I always knew I wanted to be a mom, and that I wanted 3 kids. I always wanted to be a social worker, and was lucky enough to be one until my health suffered after the birth of my twins in 1998. I had worked with physically and intellectually challanged people since I was 14, and it was my honor to do that line of work until I retired from my position as an LSW caseworker for the State of Maine. Then I returned to my art, which I had also done since very young, and had actually been encouraged to major in at college.
Interests I love all things art and all things crafts.I love paper and inks, and glass and clay. I love using found items or recycled items to use in my work. I love to take pictures of the world around me to use in my work. I have always had a passion for gardening, and even tho I am now somewhat limited in how much gardening I can do, I still love being around my flowers and plants, using them in my crafts, or flower petals in my papermaking. I also love birds, and have tons of my painted birdhouses around my yard. They are all occupied year round.
Favorite Movies Family Man, A Knights Tale, Wedding Date, Dan in Real Life, and I love all the Twilight movies
Favorite Music Soft rock, oldies, some new stuff
Favorite Books informational, instructional books to improve my craft
