I'm currently living South of Portland in a sweet little town called Independence. I'm a visual artist, frequently working in the non-profit world or as a teacher. I'm an avid reader with specific interests in poetry, music and historical biographies. I don't watch TV but have recently become "hooked" on Downtown Abbey". During the past 2 years I've been doing a lot of collaborative work with a group of writers and artists called 13 Hats, which I co-founded. I'm represented by Butters Gallery in PDX and have a show coming up this Fall at the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art in MT.
