LOFT & HOUSES
I am an artist & a hooper. Been hooping (I teach it too) since 2009, been an artist always.
I grew up an Air Force Brat & lived all over the country as well as in Korea.
But now I make my home in Colorado Springs.
I studied graphic design & photography, worked as a graphic designer, then spent many years doing fine craft shows (with jewelry mostly, but occasionally with paintings & sculpture) & selling to galleries all over the US as well as a few in Europe & Mexico. Nowadays....not so much, due to health issues.
My husband is Andy Vick who is the executive director of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, where he's doing some incredible things to help grow arts & culture throughout the Colorado Springs community.
We have a chug (pug/chihuahua mix). Her name is OZI & she was a rescue dog. Shes cute as hell & has a mind of her own.
Our Loft has been featured on HGTV (Offbeat America), as well as in a
American Style Magazine

We then moved to a house in LaVale, Maryland. I made that into a wacky place to live too. Now we live in Colorado Springs in a great 70's house. It has also been featured in a magazine.
