So here I am, delving into art a bit more seriously again. After taking a 10 yr break to teach Waldorf Education and study Anthroposophy, which I thoroughly enjoyed and don't plan on completely giving up. In terms of my artistic background I graduated in art in 2000 from Bennington College in Vermont, then moved to Italy where I painted in oil, exhibiting my work locally and working as a children's book illustrator, having 13 children's books published. Now I find it's time to re-focus on my art and give it a jump start by starting the MA in Art & Design at Grey's School of Art in Aberdeen.
