Memphis is home; connected to the mighty Mississippi River, an ever flowing life blood for generations of creative, soul filled humans. I live here with my husband and our young adult son. Like the river, I wind my way through creative experience, finding pathways to peace and deeper meaning. Though painting is my first love, my path often visits clay, metal, paper, fabric, and Thigh High Jeans, a sustainable blue jean company I co-founded. My formal training includes an undergraduate degree in Art from Berea College and a Masters in Education from the University of Memphis. Growing up in a creative home instilled a love of both making and exploration. That has surely guided me to this beautifully rich life. I am forever grateful.
