Blessed are the Weird
I am an artist to my core, as I believe we all are.
One person’s art may be painting or music, while another person’s may be cooking, cars, or gardening … it is all art, all expression.
Officially, I studied art at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. But, where I really learned art was at my mother’s knee. Growing up I watched her as she sketched & painted. Some of my fondest memories are us picnicking and drawing the plants by the brook … she taught me to see the purples in a winter field.
For many years I owned a bookstore/gallery/live music venue in northwest New Jersey called “Inner Vision”. It was there that I was able to share the importance of self expression, as well as musical and visual delight through the artists and musicians that I sponsored for the community.
During and after “Inner Vision” I had a business called “Boudicca Baby” where I made and sold my hand-crafted jewelry, sculptures and wood works (which I learned at my Father’s knee). I moved to the Catskill Mountains after closing the Inner Vision store and sold to shops and galleries in the New Paltz / Woodstock area, as well as Globally.
Presently I lead online and in person art workshops, create my own art and lead eco-tours. I am a Certified Florida Naturalist, hired to take people into the backwaters on kayaks and teach them all about the local flora and fauna. I also incorporate my love of nature with my in-person art classes.
