Cheering the Harrison
Goblins to victory.
I was born and raised in the Boston Mountains of northwest Arkansas. I grew up with a reverence and appreciation for the beauty of nature and an artistic inclination that came from my dad, a musician, and my mom, a painter.
I make my home in St. Louis, MO. I have an undergrad degree in social welfare and a master's degree in education, both from the University of Arkansas. I am nearing completion of a degree in fine art from Southern Illinois University. Paul, my husband, is a corporate communications contractor and musician. Between us, we have five kids, four grandkids and one on the way.
My other interests include classical, jazz and blues music, herbal medicine and massage therapy. I am a naturopath and am licensed to practice massage therapy in Texas and Missouri.
Painting is something I do with my hands to place my voice in the world.
The impressions spring onto the canvas, whatever medium that might be, as an
expression of my reaction to contemporary social and emotional issues.
