I am a Nashville-based poet and abstract artist working with acrylic and mixed media.
My mornings begin early with a large coffee, a notebook, and a pen. Curled up near to my rabbit, I fill up a few pages of "monkey mind" and map out my day's trajectory. I love being able to work from my home alongside my husband, also a writer, who graciously shares his living space with a continuous stream of art that spills out from my studio.
When I’m not creating, I garden, cook, read, hike, nanny, and participate in local arts and literary communities. I am easily won-over by a good Saison or excellent podcast recommendation.
For the past five years, I’ve studied and taught in the field of Montessori education and am an American Montessori Society certified teacher for ages 3-6. I love to support children’s natural rhythms of development and work with them as they practice basic skills of physical, social, and emotional independence. I continue to partner with families outside of the classroom to support holistic development of their kids.
