So welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy looking at my stuff. My studio is a converted stall in our "mare motel" here in Cave Creek, AZ. (That is what the locals call a barn down here in the desert) That is the perfect place for me. I have lots of "help" during the day between the horses peeking in for a bite of my sandwich or a bird coming in to help themselves. Rosa, my bad dog is my constant artroom companion and doesn't seem to find peril in the shower of sparks from the grinder.

I have the most wonderful husband in the world and two beautiful girls, 8 horses, 2 donkeys, 3 dogs, the naughty birds, little bad wrens, bowling balls, pretty birds, hawk targets and wild parrots.

In my life, I have managed to live in 8 or 9 states across the country so far and have fished in probably 20 more. I am a big red truck driver, ski instructor, white water guide, wrangler, fishing guide, blacksmith, healer, wife, mother and artist. So, I get around. Never a dull moment. We travel alot, I take alot of photographs, I hope you enjoy them. It's fun being me...
