A little bit about me

Books on my nightstand right now:
Poetics of Light by Henry Plummer
Desiring Italy: Women Writers Celebrate the Passions of a Country and Culture, edited by Susan Cahill
Designing Pornotopia: Travels in Visual Culture, by Rick Poynor

Clutter you’ll find on top of those books:

sharpies

brush pens

crayons

 

Artists who tickle my creativity:

Pablo Picasso

Erté

Dr. Suess

 

Architects I’m jazzed about:

Frank Lloyd Wright

Santiago Calatrava

Antonio Gaudi

 

Other tidbits and trivia:

I am an artist and architect who chose to become a stay-at-home mom in 2001.

I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the College of Fine and Applied Arts at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.

My children are my greatest challenge, and my greatest inspiration.

    As I was skimming through this, I transposed Dr. Seuss into the ‘favorite architects’ category. Which would still be a good answer in my opinion! Great writing!
