What is something you’d like to do in the future?

This summer I was able to serve a missionary couple by providing design services for their 3 level converted barn that will be used to house marginalized women. I hope to do a lot more of these types of projects in the future.

What is something you’re grateful for, appreciate, encouraged by, or excited about?

That God is a mystery of never ending love.  I’m still in love with my husband, proud of our two daughters and have friends that are family to celebrate life with.

Personal notes:

I like the quote by Sir Winston Churchill “‘We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.’ I believe creatively designed spaces improve lives, which changes communities, and betters societies. 

What kind of art do you do?

I create spaces.
