I grew up in the wooded hills and steel valleys of Pennsylvania, then went west looking for adventure. I found forestry, fine art and furniture making in Colorado, became a painter in the Northwest, a fisherman’s wife in Alaska and a bluegrass band-mom in New York. Our family has lived in many inspiring places of mountains, rivers, oceans and wilderness. We raised three kids, ran away with the circus, and built a cedar gingerbread house in the Pacific Northwest, where you might  find me berry picking, painting pictures or keeping time on the stand up bass.
