I am fortunate to have a studio at each location--Minden, Nevada and Fairbanks, Alaska. In Minden I look out my window and see the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains one direction and the desert the other direction. I generally spend 8 months a year at this studio.
In Alaska even though I am three miles out of Fairbanks, wildlife runs through my yard daily and "eats my sweet peas once they are fruited." I have also seen foxes, hares, and spruce hens coming through the yard. I spend the summer months in Alaska to avoid the heat but also because I love the country. We lived here fulltime for over 35 years.
Both environments foster my creativity but often in different directions. Feel free to stop by for a visit at either location if you're in town. Email me or call for directions. Hope to see you soon.
