photo-3I am passionate about art and design in everyday life, the continuation of artisan/craftsman skills and supporting and inspiring the efforts of others.

I realize the need to not only care about and discuss these things, but to do and be. It is not enough to value artisan skills and dream of being a weaver. I have to do the hard work associated with the dream. I have to become. I have to support the bread baker, the furniture maker, the potter, the CSA. I have to choose.

My tools are the habits of : Creativity, Discipline and Focus. I strive to learn to wield and master them. My most powerful lens to view the world is Grace. I stive to learn to accept and show it.

I live in South Dakota, and love sharing good food, art, lively discussions, great books and Wendell Berry quotes with my husband, Patrick, our 4 almost grown children.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. –Anais Nin
