I have been labeled eccentric, whatever. With six decades behind me I have compiled a lifetime of outrageous experiences as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, traveler, curator and self-taught photographer. My most recent leap of faith was as a founder and executive director of the Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts in Chester, Vermont.
Loving adventure, hardcore solo travel has refined me. I have traveled to some of the most remote places in the world to experience the feeling of exhilaration and detachment, all while unveiling my resilience in “out of the box” situations. In each locale I volunteered for a minimum of three months, teaching English, working on a silk worm farm and organizing women’s support groups, while herding cattle. Stepping into a different culture and learning from it, is what feeds me. Standing on the edge of a precipice and looking down, excites me.
And……I’m not done yet!
