ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in New England with my wonderful husband, my hilarious seven-year old daughter, my adorable baby boy, a feisty Australian Cattle Dog mix and a tank of of freshwater fish. My family spends time hiking together (we leave the fish at home…) and practicing a lot of yoga (we leave the dog at home, too…). I do as many art projects as I can find time for, spend my winters fighting blizzards and my summers slogging through beach traffic, and love reading post-apocalyptic dystopian fiction whenever my kids are sleeping. (That'll happen someday, right?!)
