- Artist Bio
I am a Phoenix native and currently reside here again, but have traveled around the US all throughout my life. Being a Christian and raising three cool boys by myself gave me a unique perspective on a few things in life.
And I have always enjoyed writing - having about 1000 poems and creative non-fiction pieces under my literary belt; a few having been published or won awards.
Currently I am working on one of my degrees; working towards my Master's in Expressive Art Therapy and I believe in the power of doll-play with my clients and others. As well as creating; taking something almost from nothing and making
a whole new concept out of it - that is exciting and inspiring. I have witnessed this occur on several ocassions with others besides myself and it simply re-inforces our God-given potential to heal and grow as individuals.
To get past the wounds that would hold us back and propel us to keep on going despite any and everything.
- Artist Statement
I am excited to be here with Altered Barbie this year again - as both a poet and an artist, as I have entered two pieces: one poetry piece and one art piece.
And also my very talented son, ZachSketch has entered pieces as well; so this is awesome to share this fantastic experience with him.
I so appreciate all of the love & hard work Julie and her team put into this exhibit for all of the artists, community members, and supporters.
All I can say is - #12 - what a year to celebrate and be thank ful for!
