I feel as if I have discovered my niche. Clarity, color and creative are my watchwords. If you find that ‘something’ that never bores, then accept this wonder and remain humble.
I owe my artistry to my mother, Patricia C. Green, as well as my inventiveness. I was raised on the west side of Washington. Both my parents were educators but they did not encourage me to follow in their footsteps. So I did not. My mom started her own cottage industry, “Pat’s Pots.” She hit the road and sold her wares at art/street fairs in the hippie days of the late 60’s and early 1970’s. I was her assistant and did what I could to help her, including spending the weekend in her booth. And here I am, with my artsy old Windows at Winter Market and then the Moscow Farmers Market.
I went to college in Seattle and graduate school in Moscow Idaho. I am a single lady who spends hours and hours gluing little bits of glass to a window pane. My glass is my hobby and a large part of my identity. I work days in Garfield WA Middle School with the special education program. At home I spend time with my son.
