I am an artist who plays with clay and creates gestural ink drawings. I grew up in Boulder, Colorado in the 60s. Yes, it was idyllic in every way. My mother was an English professor at CU and my father was a metallurgist at NIST. I have lived in many places including the Virgin Islands; Florence, Italy; and Daejeon, South Korea. I adore cooking amazing food from all over the world, gardening, and laughing with my three sisters. I love living in Los Angeles with my husband Harry who teaches physics at Cal State LA. During Harry’s spare time he refurbishes our 1972 International Scout, 1960 VW Bus, and 1976 FIrebird. Our Labrador/Weimaraner is named “Mr. Toby Ridiculous”.
