I was born and raised in the south, but wanted to get the heck out of there as soon as I could. My brother likes to say I went as far away as I could without leaving the country. Not quite, but I did go as far as Portland, Oregon. After almost 25 years in Portland, the taste of fresh summer tomatoes drew me back to the south, that and I was really tired of rain. The south still wasn’t the right place for me and now I’m in Maryland and loving it.
Ingredients in our food and for bodies has long been a passion for me. I am a bit of a mad scientist; I’ve made natural soaps, lotions, and bath products using fresh herbs and essential oils, I love growing fresh herbs to make my own soda and infused spirits, and I’m a crafter, photographer, painter… My mediums are constantly changing and evolving. As a result, I am always learning new things I want to share with others.
