I make things with my hands. Pictures. Stories. Graphics. Websites. Feasts.
At heart, I'm a visual aesthetician and cultural anthropologist. Photography, design, graphics, collage, writing, and food are my primary mediums.
I've always been a theme person. Maybe this explains why I thrived in advertising. My work
naturally comes with themes; sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but never abstract. I enjoy the challenge
of making a statement with pictures, graphics and a few words.
Native to Northern California, I lived on both sides of America's coasts, before immigrating to Kent, 'The Garden of England,' twenty years ago. I have always felt like an outsider, so the
immigrant's life suits me. It means paying attention and abandoning assumptions.
While living in England, I mastered driving on the opposite side of the road (left, left, left) without taking out too many roundabouts; made seven lifelong friends; survived the devastating loss of my husband to 'osteosarcoma of the jaw'; worked in media, as well as an independent creative director; graphic designer; website maker; photographer, and writer.
