About Me

Third grade teacher in suburb of Chicago. Started a Creative Journaling group for teachers at my school.

Married late in life. No children - except for a beautiful dog (Dogo Argentino) and a beautiful hairless cat!

I love garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores. Collect sugar and creamers, paper ephemera, and dollhouse miniatures.

In the past, I have traveled to many places around the world. Now I go to Door County, WI several times a year.

Have taken tons of art classes and workshops. Can't wait to retire (2021) and be a full-time artist.
