I am an artist and photographer from the rural Manchester area outside of Ann Arbor. The written word was my first true love, and I studied English & Literature at the University of Michigan. I am utterly devoted to my dear little family. I have a husband, five children, and a very old farmhouse- filled with art & books- in which to live. My current work involves abstract watercolor spheres gilded with gold, silver, or copper leaf. My aim is an overall simplicity in composition, while the details, blends and bleeds of color and patches of gilding speak to my memories and deep emotion. The constraint of the sphere has become a safe way for me to explore fears and desires, to delve into personal struggles and pain, and ultimately to find beauty, calm, and patches of light.
