Eleven years ago we moved to Half Moon Bay. I love this beautiful place where green fields end at the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean.  We made our home in an old train station.  One day Coastside Land Trust brought a herd of goats and sheep to graze the coastal meadows. I owe those animals a debt of gratitude; their connection to the land, sea, and air shifted something in me.  After years of putting my creativity last, I moved it to the front of my to-do list.  I draw, paint and weave – finding inspiration from and incorporating elements of the natural world into the things I make. Often working in collaboration with my husband Steve we find delight in the creatures and elements in our garden and beyond.
