I am an on again / off again artist since the age of 7. I have always loved working with textiles and got my start hand sewing Barbie clothes and crocheting little cat toys. I have earned the nickname of Treehugger by my sister because I care about the environment, love animals and was a vegetarian for 8 years. Although no longer a vegetarian, I try to make up for that by collecting homeless animals (I have 16 adorable pets incuding cats, dogs, turtles, rabbits, a hamster, a parrot and a horse) and by using discards in new and inventive ways. My ideal date is a romantic dinner of In 'n Out Burger and a trip to the Salvation Army for their 50% off sale. Luckily my very handsome and supportive boyfriend feels the same way. My guilty obsession is astrology, I love to read it and see what is supposed to happen to me. I am a Gemini with a Virgo moon and a Scorpio rising. Chris is a Virgo. Virgos and Geminis aren't supposed to match well but we both have rising Scorpios <3 My son and my daughter are both Leo so this makes for a very
exhausting lively home.
