I am currently a US Peace Corps volunteer on the Island of Dominica in the Eastern Caribbean. Some of the tasks I do as a volunteer : I teach art at a primary school, help the school with development projects, volunteer with a youth group,and volunteer helping to organize and produce a local literary festival. I am an artist who was born and grew up in Alaska, as did my mother--my grandfather was a gold miner. I worked for over 20 years on
boats in Alaskan waters and lived for
over 18 years in the"bush" with no electricity and no cars. Alaska has
shaped my view of life and culture, but so has raising two daughters, a life of
making art in many mediums, and owning my own Used and Rare
Bookstore. I guess I am somewhat of a vagabond who has done many things in my life--deckhand on a fishing
boat, bookseller, nanny, chef,
adminstrative assistant in a college
dean's office,mom (that is a job!) but I always come back to artist.
