Sometimes cats look sweet and innocent, but they are waiting for you to walk by so they can attack.   Save

Story
Tagline
Where art and family collide.
Introduction
I am a mother moonlighting as an artist and entertaining you with stories about how I somehow, sometimes, hold it all together. We live in a Geodesic dome in Southern New Mexico. My family is quirky in all of the good ways. Want to know more? Check out the blog: It's A Dome Life.

Do you like art jewelry and paintings, but really don't want to hear about all of the family stuff? You might want to just head straight over to my Etsy shop: Dome Life Studios.

My art is just one big, messy experiment. I'm fond of trying out new techniques and new mediums. The thing I love the most is color.


Bragging rights
I sometimes make people laugh. Usually at me, sometimes with me.
