...author for families of the Earth!
I live in one of the most inspiring communities ever; Duvall, Washington!
I have been serving this community as an Early Childhood Educator since 2010. It has had it challenges the first six years as a single mother, but life has taken a turn as I have recently discovered my husband and soul mate.
While raising my two little ones and teaching preschool, I have
volunteered and donated my art and time to the Duvall Farmer's Market, Northwest Art Center, Duvall Visitor's Center and other local events such as The March of the Vegetables, Duvall Days and serving the Sandblast Committee.
We have also participated in a local community garden and some years ago we were really into fairy gardens, but I guess kids grow up, don't they?
Most of my art is inspired by my love for Mother Earth and my natural surroundings
...especially the sunshine. When my children were younger, I was constantly searching for books and activities that instilled this great love for Mother Earth. Eventually, I stop searching so much and started creating, this lead to a bigger vision
and with time I hope this vision will manifest into something more than just an idea in my head.
While I was growing up I just WAS NOT the sort of teenager who was into modern day pop-culture, such as famous actors and rock star. I guess this is where it all began for me, but where it will end, I have no clue, hopefully somewhere magical. These days, my family and I love to explore and participate in local events and I am truly grateful to be part of such an active, creative and empowering community
and sharing my art and time is the best way I can express my appreciation for all that Duvall has brought to us.
