About

as-mug-2I am a person that makes art, music, and recently found writing as a pastime.  My preference was comfortable anonymity until I received enough “angel bombs” on my head that convinced me to start sharing my work & nuggets of wisdom I have gained on my creative journey. hopefully I can help other “travelers”  as it is not always an easy road to follow. There have been plenty of writers who have helped me,  As I am now reitired from teaching middle school I have the time to give back as well as indulge in my passions.

A pleasant surprise, blogging has also stimulated other facinations.  As a result, you will also find photography, poetry & other treasures I find interesting to share on my blog as well.

My home is an old farmhouse in the wine country of rural Oregon, about an hour from Portland. My companions are a wonderful man & two crazy dogs.  I love my country life and exploring Oregon on foot, in a kayak & on cross- country skis.  In the summer I have a big organic garden. Then there are those thrift stores to explore for treasures….

Though I enjoy many creative pursuits, learning the bodhran (the irish drum), singing in a women’s choir, writing poetry &  combining ceramics, found objects & air plants take the majority of my time at the moment.  Here’s where you can see my work:
