About me

Gender Female

Occupation Artist and Musician
Location Dubuque, IA, United States
Introduction I am an artist, purveyor of vintage goods, musician, actress, mighty fisherwoman and collector of cool stuff from Dubuque, IA. My award-winning bead and jewelry designs have been featured in juried shows across the US and in major craft publications. As a purveyor of vintage goods, I have a shop that offers unique vintage treasures - As a musician, I perform as one half of an acoustic duo with my guitarist husband (and founder of The DubuqueGuitar School). We enjoy playing at wedding ceremonies, private parties, coffee shops, wineries and art galleries. Visit our websites at and As an actress, I am usually busy learning lines for my next appearance in a community theater production. As a mighty fisherwoman, I spend many hours out on the Mississippi River sacrificing worms to the fish gods in hopes of snagging the "big one"! As a collector of cool stuff, I drive my husband crazy with my near inability to part with anything beautiful, handmade, or which might be useful for something someday.
