Art in the blood.
My mother is an accomplished professional artist and in later life she taught my father to paint as well. She nurtured my artistic talent and skills, which I use in my life on personal and professional levels. My favorite medium to work with is people. I am a licensed Hair Designer and Esthetician. But I truly enjoy creating with wood and metal.
I went to college for design. I love furniture, and thought that I would become a furniture designer. Life happens and I was offered a position to work with a builder. I have been a Realtor ever since. I now work at Hawkins Poe, Inc. and I get to use my skills at staging homes.
I enjoy the 3-D aspect and take pleasure in transforming and repurposing. My largest scale project was transforming an Air Stream into my Hair Stream Salon.
I lived in Saudi Arabia in the 1980’s as program director of American Ladies of Jeddah, and we had a lovely artist group.
I volunteer at Hope Furnishings and this gives me inspiration on so many levels. I get to work with people and furniture…..what a joy!
