I am a high school art teacher/painter. I am passionate about art, gardening, nature, animals, and living here in the mountains. I like hiking, reading, drawing & painting, music, cooking, baking, dancing and spending time with friends.
Though I read all kinds of books, I tend to like historical novels best. And though I enjoy watching all kinds of movies, I like fantasy and romantic comedies the most. I raised my children without TV because I believe it can so easily keep us from living our own lives fully.
I am a Canadian and US citizen. I have traveled all through Europe, Canada and the US. When I first came to the Blue Ridge Mountains NC I felt, for the first time, that I had found home. I rarely travel now because I love my home and have very little desire to leave it. Now I love to share this experience with others.
