About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist, maker
Location Albany, California, United States
Introduction I love making things. Lately I've been making small watercolors and continuing with my slow fiber work. I am a granny with a small carbon footprint.
Interests Fabrics, stitching, animals in general and equines in particular, reading, painting, tai chi, yoga, teaching music and walking rather slowly
Favorite Music The music I have played is mostly old-time, bluegrass and old-fashioned country, but I enjoy listening to all sorts of sounds, most particularly birds. Lately I've been studying classical guitar and playing fiddle with a friend who specializes in Cajun accordian.
