I am an artist living and working in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, in a cordwood house my husband and I designed and built. You can read more about our house on our blog, nerdwood.com.

I spend a great deal of time outdoors. My work combines abstract patterns and textures with motifs inspired by the world I observe around me — animals, birds, trees, leaves, and flowers.

My art sometimes takes the form of landscape paintings inspired by the surrounding forests, fields and shores. Other times it incorporates collage using exotic papers, leaf skeletons and ephemera. Sometimes it takes the form of assemblages using reclaimed wood and other found materials.
