I spent much of my childhood in Oklahoma and the Ozark mountain region of Arkansas, and eventually ended up at the University of Arkansas, earning a B.A. in English in 1992 and a M.A. in Biology in 1996. After moving to California, I taught high school Biology, but after ten years I “retired” from that and I am now an adjunct Biology instructor at Clovis Community College. I live in Fresno, California, with my husband and our two dogs, Frida and Otis.
My work includes ceramic sculpture, mixed media, and jewelry, as well as oil and watercolor painting.
