I am a professional artist, living in Arcata, CA, I enjoy gardening, yardsaleing, hiking,yoga, eating and preparing great food with friends, traveling, going to art openings, live theatre, community involvement...and reading.I enjoy meeting new people and traveling to different environments .We have hosted AFS high school students for a year from France, Turkey and Denmark. These students have ended up becoming part of our extended family as well. I enjoy young people and all they have to share in this world. We have one awesome daughter as well.
Often I travel with my husband, Dana who is a woodworker and outdoorsy guy...We both love animals domestic and otherwise. We are believers that we should walk gently on this earth and do what we can to keep a small consumer footprint.
We have travelled to Central America,Canada, Mexico, Scotland, Ireland, England and France....and all over the Western U.S. In my 20's I lived in Spain and traveled extensively around Europe and the Canary Islands. I grew up in Germany and moved to U.S. when I was 14.
I have little tolerance for rude , ignorant and bigoted folks...Believe we all can find SOMETHING which we have in common and try not to focus on the things we do not.
