Getting in Touch
My left brain ruled the roost for the first 50+ years of my life. I still enjoy science, research, math, etc.
But it's been very liberating to give myself permission to experiment and let the results just "happen." I love textures, colors, and art of all styles and am learning to live in that world myself!

My art reflects balance ...
Nature -- Wire
Recycling -- New Ideas
Bending -- Straightening
Shiny -- Matte
Sharp -- Soft
Through art I've found the balance between my scientific right brain and my creative left brain.
Only a few years ago, I was trying to figure out ways to express myself artistically. Nothing seemed to be the right "fit" until I started working with wire in some mixed-media pieces and then saw some beautiful wire sculptures in a small gallery in Texas.
I came home from that trip and started creating trees. Over times, I've grown more comfortable with the process. So, now, I'm blending my spirit with the wire, rocks, and wood to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
This is one part of who I am.
I am blessed to be the mom of a daughter and son who are interesting and talented young adults and partner of artist and hiking buddy, Michael Allen Campbell. Outside of the studio, I'm a nurse faculty member teaching future nurses - my LEFT brain. In the studio, I connect with inner creativity - my RIGHT brain.
