a mother, wife, artist, treasure-seeker, humorist & the creator of
The Black Heart Revolution.I'm pretty sure I was born to make things.
Can't help it. It runs right down through my core. I sew, I paint, I illustrate, photograph, & design.
I used to bake (but somehow became worse and worse as I should have became much, much better) and was really into jewelry design and metalsmith-ing.
Occasionally (ok, a lot) I make up my own words. I can't go a single day with out having what I call: RockShow/ DanceParty [I'm typically alone when I have these little jam sessions (I dance like Elaine from Seinfeld), but sometimes my kids join in too]. I have an affinity to speaking in different accents: mostly German, then French, and of course back-woods southern. What's wrong with me? Ah-I don't know.
I enjoy having a WONDERFUL sense of humor and I like to laugh (a lot). It just makes life- better. Don'tcha think?
Instead of going on and on about everything I like I'll just give you a little run down on what inspires me:
- Design [Good. Design.]
- Shiny Objects
- Children's Story Books
- Vintage Stuff
- Other People's Art
- Oh, yeah. Art
- Traveling/ Places/ Nooks and Crannies
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
