About Me

I love all things art!! Zentangle has been such an enlightening experience and pushing me beyond the things I thought I could do - now I am drawing, painting, collaging, lots of wonderful art making!!! For my day job I am a pediatric mental health therapist (clinical social worker) in Nevada. I have two dogs that I absolutely adore - they are super active so they keep me going!! I also have a flock of chickens that are fun to watch and interact with - bonus, they also provide fresh eggs pretty much year round.


I am a lover of colors! Rainbows and bright beautiful colors make me happy. I want to say green is my favorite color - but I am not sure that's true. I LOVE colors!! I like inspirational quotes - especially handwritten little art pieces. Botanical Line Drawings, florals, fun characters - any kind of art is definitely on my LIKE list. I have started to move into the world of ATC, paper crafting and watercolor as well. So ephemera is always appreciated.

Watching movies is one of my favorite things to do - if I have a strong coffee in hand I am basically in heaven. I am a Capricorn, so productivity is my superpower :D I basically go non-stop from morning until evening and then hop on the couch and draw while I hang out with my best friend, my dogs or both.

Lately I have been watching The Following, Bosch, Ozarks and Carnival Row. I generally watch shows that are ended and then just watch the whole series over the course of a few months. I think superheros are pretty cool (the older XMEN movies got me hooked). I love to cook vegetarian meals, grow things and spend time with my friends and my pets - and sometimes my family.

Let me see - what else. Social Work is my passion and I treat children with mental health struggles in my private practice, Journey Within. I am spiritual but definitely not religious. I am big into the "mystical" (I can't really think of any other way to put it) and I am a GIANT tree hugger. This isn't as uncommon as it used to be :)

Favorite Books

Stephen King is my favorite author. I wouldn't say that I am typically a horror person. I am easily spooked, but Stephen King's writing style is phenomenal ...so, yeah, I love him!!

I have an hour long commute to and from work, so I am an avid Audible listener. I have also been listening to books while I paint in the evenings and have been averaging 2 books a week (seems insane to me!)

Currently I am listening to Dervla McTeirnan's Irish crime novels after finishing The Casual Vacancy, The Silent Patient and the Institute as well as the 50 hour saga with the first 2 Kingkiller Chronicle books by Rothfuss.

Hard to say what my very favorite books are. The Stand is my all time favorite story. I also love a well written series where you can follow characters for more than one book. - Narnia books; The Time Quartet, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; Hunger Games -


I don't really like candy all that much. Wait, yes, I like candy - I don't eat candy or other sugary foods because, well, it's not healthy.

I don't like creepy, dark stuff. And don't like anything that's hateful, based on bigotry or superiority.

I don't really like adult cartoons. I would say I don't like crude humor, but I am not sure that's what you call it. I love Step Brothers the movie, don't like American Dad and King of the Hill stuff.
