Born 1960 Orleans, France. She is a self taught visual artist, who has spent most of her life in the western United States. She is a survivor of extreme domestic violence, followed by 13 years incarceration. Between Covid and the label of violent felon, housing and employment were nonexistent. A generous speaking engagement facilitated a down payment on land, and the Desert Fish House Hope and Healing Project began. A year in has brought considerable progress. She has moved from a tent to a pallet structure, and continues to work on additional camping/studio spots for impacted guests. The cost of fuel and materials have put the need for donated resources at an all time high.
