Okay, is this the part where I tell you about how an interior designer gone theater props artisan took the leap to making art only to figure out later that she’s obsessed with making books? Yes? Oh good, because I just did. And that pretty much sums up the last 20 years of my life.
But if you were to run into me somewhere and ask me what I do, I’d tell you that I’m in the process of making a beautiful life. Because that’s what it’s really all about in the end. Figuring out how to make my joy for life shine through my art.
