My jobs and my hobbies are all about making art and communicating. I love it!
I work full-time at a non-profit that encourages families to read to their young children so they will grow up loving books and reading. My part in that is to create the many posters, fliers, booklets, e-news, newsletters and other visual communications to get our message to families in many different ways.
I also do free-lance layout and design, children's book illustrations, and paintings. My artwork hangs on all the walls in my house, so you'll see my different styles.
I like taking photographs, walking, reading, playing cards, gardening, yoga, cooking, sewing, petting the cats, dancing... I also love talking to people and learning about all the different interests and professions people have.
Ithaca is a place of multiple and varied opinions, lifestyles, and ethnic backgrounds. This cultural richness makes for a wonderful community to live in, raise children, and to visit!
