So, why did you move here?

I live in the beautiful land of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although I was born and raised in Southern California, I had an itch at an early age to leave and travel to my true spiritual home, the upper Midwest of the USA.

There are seasons here, and sometimes we experience more than one per day. They lend a sense of urgency to living, always preparing for the coming changes. We garden, we cook; we spend time outside whenever we can, as the opportunity to be outside here is precious and fleeting. Too hot, too cold, too humid, too windy – it’s always something here on the prairie, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I live in a very special part of this city called Nordeast, a local pronunciation for the part of town which is neither north nor east of anything in particular. Our house is situated on a hill, overlooking the rail yards and new and upcoming breweries of the artists' quarter. Our little neighborhood boasts one of the nicest municipal golf courses in the country. We mostly walk around it, but it sure is pretty. It even has loons on the water hazards in the spring. A beautiful place that we call home.

I brought my three children here when they were young, and they have thanked me for it. You can’t expect much more than that when you uproot your kids and set them down 2500 miles east where they don’t know anyone. It made us closer as a family, and I have never regretted the decision.

I am happy to have a website to show my art to family and friends who live far away. Watercolor was my medium initially, and I have now expanded into oils, acrylics, collage, encaustic, and mixed media. No sculpture yet, but stay tuned. You never know.

Thank you for visiting.
