Artistic Statement

My goal has always been, like Miss Rumphius, to make the world a more beautiful place. That goal informed my choice of career, teaching, because in teaching I tried to help kids live fuller, richer, happier lives. It has informed my domestic life in my creation of spaces and it informed the choices I made daily in parenting. Certainly, it has informed my choice of avocations—writing and painting.

Why I write

I write because I believe that the creation of fictional worlds is the highest aspiration of humankind. In my writing I wish to convey some sense, some hint of the complexity of life and emotion and relationship.
