I am 54 years old. Born and lived in the Adirondacks my entire life. I am the mother of a 23 year old son. Love him dearly. I am an avid gardener and have been an organic advocate since I was a teenager. Had a business with my son's father growing and selling organic hard neck garlic at local farmers markets. Life long love of music ( piano lessons ( 9 years ), self taught guitar, drums presently enjoying ukulele. Fortunate to have a mom who was first runner up in the Miss Adirondack beauty pageant( late 50's) and also earned a degree in interior design. She was a stay at home mom who created in both my brother( a great artist ) and me an enduring love of beauty and kindness in all its forms. I began dabbling in watercolors in my early twenties. About five years ago I delved into paper and ink. I love this form of expression, it allows me to merge my thoughts and feelings in a very quick sketch/ with riotous color. Have always been attuned to the subtle energies that we are all apart of. This life is a gift. I am making every attempt to not waste it!
