When I was young, I used to sit outside in our yard that backed up to the woods for HOURS observing bugs and lifting rocks to see what would crawl out. I also created lots of artwork. I could never make up my mind what I wanted to be when I grew up, a biologist or an artist. So I did both.

     The Bumbleshack Studio is full of creations that make me happy. I am inspired by all creatures great and small, bold color, Pop Art, nature, recycling and mid-century modern design. I make paintings, art prints and canvases, tote bags, note and greeting cards, childrens’ clothing, dolls, stuffed animals, pillows and other household decor. Pet portraits are my specialty, and my favorite things to create!

     I live in a tiny house on wheels called The Bumbleshack in the mountains of western North Carolina, and I work from my home studio with my 4 year old daughter, a huge Golden Retriever/Bernese Mountain Dog and two cats. I also have a 14 year old daughter in high school and a computer programmer husband. I am about to begin a new journey as an organic farmer.
