I'm an intelligent and curious woman who loves most creative outlets. I went to art school for college and studied photography and printmaking, but I love making art and jewelry using a wide range of media. Right now, for example, I am working on a line of jewelry using vintage beads and components as well as working on my art.
Besides making and admiring art, design and crafts, I like: books, music (old and new), crosswords (though I still can't make it through the Sunday NYT puzzle...if you can, I'm officially impressed!), mid-century modernism, the ocean, dogs, learning about new things, mocha lattes with friends, fall weather, real *paper* magazines, traveling to new places...
I am a passionate and empathetic person, and I have a tendency to go out of my way for people I really care about. My family is important to me, and my three siblings and I are very close.
I don't have a full time job because I am still recovering (and doing remarkably well, considering) from chronic illnesses that have left me somewhat disabled up until recently. I have persevered through a lot of adversity, health wise, and I think it adds to my character. My hope is that there are people out there that don't judge me by how "far" I've gotten in life, but just appreciate me for who I am.
