A magical childhood centered around the kitchen table where the sharing of tall tales, recipes and laughter fueled imagination and play – comes full circle in my pursuit of a back to basics way of life. I am a believer that when we nurture we heal and when we heal, we preserve the sacred. My days are spent creating a nest where one can lean into the flow of the day and feel loved. In this nest, one can find me tending to a small family, being an artist of paint and collage, developing a line of skin care that is as natural and as it is pretty, dabbling as an herbalist, teaching at my farm table, and writing. I live in upstate New York surrounded by pine trees and swaying locusts.
