|Location||California mountains, United States|
|Introduction||A mix of Oglala Sioux, Cherokee, and Northern Italian, I am a 4th generation artist (I work in alkyds, acrylics, watercolors, ink, and colored pencil on canvas and paper), and 2nd generation photographer. I walk a spiritual path that is a blend of my 3 cultures, plus my Irish Godmother's culture. I have one green eye and one brown eye, just like my Northern Italian Nonna (grandmother). I live with my husband and our four-footed babies (human ones are grown, flown and thriving) in a cottage that sits by a cold, clear-running stream high in a mountain forest which is filled not only with beauty, but also magic and wonder.|
