Originally hailing from the Midwest, I've traveled to most of the 50 states, lived in New Orleans pre-Katrina, and found my home of the past 6 years in Portland Oregon. My studio doubles as a gym, where I practice yoga to a doom metal soundtrack.
Running an art studio/small business means there are numerous tasks and projects going on all at once. Despite my complete lack of multi-tasking abilities, I am mostly able to make it work. One day will be print packaging, the next I'm working on a cat portrait, followed by watercolor blob day, then onto endless gold-leafing! I also work with elderly people one day a week as an art therapist. Check out my blog where I share my experiences.
