Get to Know
I loved growing up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, especially on the Olympic Peninsula, mainly because the Olympic National Forest & Park were literally in my back yard! I grew up in a small town called Port Townsend, WA , which is an amazing Old Victorian Sea Port, with Victorian Architecture everywhere, from the Houses, Buildings, & the many Castles (yes I said Castles). This town also has a Hippie type counterculture which I've always loved and embraced, from the yurts to the farmers markets, as well as everything in between. A lot of the art forms I have been exposed to, and still do today, I learned from this town, this area, & the ppl who live here, especially the "counterculture"(which I think is quickly becoming, just the "Culture", w/out the "counter" part!lol).
Pyrography, which is the art of Burning intricate images into wood or leather, is one of my mainstays in my artwork, however I also, Weave baskets from vines & make Native American style cedar bark baskets, I build things like Bat Houses, Bird Houses, as well as anything else I can wrap my mind around & figure out how to construct.
