Other fun facts about me...

When I was eight years old I received my first art kit. The kind that folds up 

with a handle so you can take your art supplies anywhere. I would take the 

kit, walk behind our house and into the 40 acre wooded property my Dad 

owned in rural Paint Lick, Kentucky (Yes, in case you were wondering

Paint Lick is an actual town). I would find a nice spot and sit for hours while

I made art. Looking back on those moments I can’t decide what part about

that memory I love the most; me quietly making art in the woods, or the

feeling of freedom to go anywhere I wanted and do something I truly

loved. I think the two are intricately connected. From the time I was eight

I knew one thing for sure; I loved to make and build stuff. I went to college

and graduate school where I concentrated in art and design. My professional

path led me to teach art, as well as, become an instructional designer. I have

an enthusiasm for beautifully crafted designs. In addition to my love for

design, I also love learning about other people and building relationships.
