About details

More about me …

My journey into the desert took me through countless miles of brush, cacti, and rock. I treasure hunted in abandoned mines and caves. Visited with an old-time cowboy. Discovered unknown petroglyphs. Been surrounded by coyotes, javelina, and hundreds of bats. Ate cactus and agave fruits. Inhaled the fragrance of creosote after rain. Talked to snakes, mice, and a mountain lion. I became sensitive to the presence of living things, the mood and energy they project into the world.

BIO – I was born In Wisconsin, spent my formative years in Tucson, Arizona, and currently live in Colorado. I lived, worked, and traveled abroad for eight years. My first painting award was at age 12. Since then I’ve exhibited paintings and sculptures in the USA and Germany. I have lots of education (BA in Wildlife Biology, MFA in Painting, PhD in Psychology). I’ve made a life and career blending my love of wild places, creativity, and psychology.
