I am Irish by birth and by nature, English in the raising and culture, and an Oregonian by choice.
I live near Portland with my husband, one dog, five chickens, some goldfish in a pond and numerous grandchildren getting lost in our gardens. We have fairy houses, bird houses, a tree house, a greenhouse and a chicken house. My studio is in our house - or sometimes in the hammock!
Toward the tail-end of raising our seven children I began to work with school communities as an artist-in-residence creating murals and large sculptural installations. We also created individual projects such as couches with families or animal sculptures.
Now I’m focusing on smaller art for little people. I have six published wordless baby books (Workman Publishing). My head is full of ideas and stories - more books in the making.
