I am an artist who encourages others to explore their creative potential by fearlessly trying new mediums and techniques. I believe that art can act as a balm for the soul when one’s innermost feelings are allowed to flow into artistic expression.
As a lifelong craft enthusiast, I love the challenge of up-cycling and creating something beautiful out of otherwise unremarkable scraps. Not only is it mentally stimulating, but also salves my environmental conscience by participating in “good stewardship”.
As so much of life is often experienced in accelerated motion, it becomes a real joy to slow down and cherish those special occasions and life changing events that bring us together. Putting forth time and energy into beautifying a venue serves to enrich the celebration by making the day even more precious in one’s memory.
I know firsthand how food allergies can negatively impact one’s social experiences, and how even well-meaning hosts can have difficulty navigating safe recipes so that their guests may partake of least one dish. So it is with the spirit of inclusion that I will be posting recipes to help eliminate these problems. All of my healthy yet tasty recipes will always be free of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, corn, canola, mushrooms, and peppers in the nightshade family. I will also be offering ingredient substitutions and helpful tips. Bon appétit!
