Most of my work is for my ongoing project of making a bird a day using Noah Scalin’s book 365 Make Something Every Day and Change...

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. Back in another life I had a job or two as a graphic designer. Now, in this period of my life, I find I have the time to become the artist I kept locked up inside myself for these many years. I just need to find the courage to fling the door open wide and go play. For now I am extremely happy just to open the door a crack and see what happens.

Ira Glass Quote

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap.
