As a young girl, I would wake early and go to the wooded valley between our home and a local farm. I had a favorite, fallen tree where I stashed pencils and paper. I spend hours wandering, drawing pictures and writing. I awakened most days with a deep sense of yearning and urgency that had to be confronted. Not much has changed. My days begin earlier and I now share my musings.

I do not know why I create art; I only know that I always have. There is a yearning for things unknown and intangible and also a great exuberance within that comes from experiences; it must be released. I cannot recall a time in my life that I was not making things. Living life is to create – the two are in separable.
