She is an experienced educator, muralist, illustrator for children, visual artist, writer, and storyteller who has been exhibiting art professionally since 1974. She captivates audiences via a multi-sensory experience of art, music, poetry, and live demonstrations.

Random sensory quotes

When you’re creating a fragrance, you’re always thinking about what you want that first smell to be, that first reaction. It’s a sensation, like a symphony with all of those layers and notes. I love the way it changes and the way it dries down. The fun thing about scent is that it’s unique to everyone; pheromones take on a new scent.
