I am an avid traveler yet I love my home town. I was born and raised in Peninsula, Ohio and still live a short distance from there. Though I have strong roots grounding me here I do not let that stop me from exploring the world. I have traveled to every continent, but Antarctica (Which im not ruling out to visit some day!) and have lived abroad in Australia as a foreign exchange student. I am continually influenced by my travels and other cultures, which encourages me to seek out new mediums to convey my designs
When I am not glued to my computer to finish an array of projects, I enjoy spending time with my little family. My husband: Matt, Son: Greyson, and Rowdy dogs: Marley & Ringo. I am most happy outside, whether its in the sun with no shoes or bundled up for a bon fire.
