I'm a daughter, sister, wife, and mother, in that order. My parents had four children. My brother Scott was their first, then 12 months and 12 days later I followed. Two and a half years later, we had a sister, Lynn, who was in turn followed seven years later by another sister, Leila, who completed the pack.
We grew up in Wisconsin in a small city on the shores of Lake Michigan. I attended college in Minneapolis and received my BA in Fine Art from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
More importantly, at the college is where I met Kurt,a Minnesotan from a small farming community, who would come to be my partner in life. We have been, and are still married for many years.
Together we've made it to our middle ages and have happily created four wonders of nature of our own, two boys and two girls, Adam, Buck, Anne Marie and Katherine. They are the light in my life. We live in Minnesota not far from where my husband and I met.
