I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Helena Touhey for The Independant, Rhode Island. Interviews offer me opportunity to step back and reflect on my process and my journey. Its also an opportuntiy to share my work with the wider community, one never knows who might connect with my work or be inspired to reconnect or reignite their own creative spark! You can read the interview here.
Inspired By Nature
I recently had the honor of being profiled in Ann Manion's Blog GreenHillRocks.com. It was lovely to have Ann in my studio and share what inspires me. Hope you enjoy the article too.
Here is a picture of my garden path leading to Ninigret Pond.
Here's the studio with a view overlooking Ninigret pond. Always a wide collection of materials and supplies in easy reach on the studio table!
