My Back Story

My back story has turned into my front story….



I strive to live a creative life, taking the “path to the left”, towards new adventure and the ultimate destination…fun! The creative arts called me towards Algonquin College where I studied ways to express my wild and wonderful ideas and get paid for them! In the same breath, Ottawa introduced me to Canadian nature artist, Brenda Carter, and my life mentor.


Knowing where you want to go, is key to getting there. It’s great to have a road map, however sometimes we have to leap and have faith that the net will appear. Whichever path we choose, we end up where we need to go. Since I was a young kid, I’ve enjoyed the adventure and learning of travel, and I remain open to a good road trip.


Writing—it’s my muse. Words draw my pictures for me. I like to write about things that inspire me, things that confound me, and I write when attempting to find my own voice. I love typography, the printed word, and a good book on a Sunday afternoon.
