Surrounded by gardens of flowering perennials, vegetables and chickens coop, my charming little house sits atop a ferned hill, overlooking the Saxtons River. Each room is a unique mix of original art and eclectic furniture, comfortable and welcoming, I hope. My studio is available to rent for a group to work or as a workshop classroom. I facilitate workshops in collage and writing and floor cloth painting, but you are welcome to create your own private open studio group. Dogs may be welcome.
Each room offers comfortable seating and interesting books to peruse. 3 porches and back yard seating offer views of river, gardens, chicken yard and the sounds of the river and birds.

I love to travel, my traveling too includes staying with local hosts whether thru Air BNB, friends of friends or small B and Bs and convents. I love to go to the places off the beaten path, to learn the local floral and fauna, as it were. I prefer to blend in. So, as my guest, you are friend, I've not yet met!
I am, at this point in my life, primarily an artist. My 3 children have grown and fledged. I love to cook with local, fresh ingredients, if I didn't grow it, I know the farmer who did. My work is a diverse mixture of collage, still life paintings, whimsical floor cloths and fabric designs, seemingly unrelated media and palette yet connected by threads of similar elements and focus. I love to read, and am always looking for new suggestions. We spend alot of time outside up here in Vermont, kayaking, hiking trails near and far, swimming the river in back are my favorites for summer, snow shoeing, cross country skiing in Winter.
So, this is me, but I am really excited to learn about you! I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to local favorites and hearing about your adventures and new discoveries!
