It rhymes with quirky…

and other things people always want to know

My surname is a present from my husband. It rhymes with quirky, which seems apt.

Making things has always part of my daily life, though professionally I first focused on writing, publishing and teaching. 

In 2003, I formed an indy design biz called Hit Those Keys. After around ten years of producing award-winning websites for fellow artists and writers, I turned to painting. I've been selling originals and prints of my work since 2011. Most recently, I exhibited my work at the One of a Kind Show, in Chicago.

I grew up in Princeton, NJ, under the dual influences of a writer-editor and an artist-architect. As a child, I was shy and happiest to be on my own and use my imagination. My favorite places to go were the pet store, the art-and-stationery supply store, and the public library. 

I’m still very fond of animals, art supplies, and books. Every day when I get to read something, write something and make something, I feel lucky.
