Springfield Vermont is my hometown!

I’m celebrating 20 years of home ownership this year and it feels pretty stinkin’ remarkable!
I’m excited about the new adventures of public painting in this art club I’ve been developing over the past 5 years.
Through trial and error, and much grace needed along the way, I’m living out loud this dream of creating a community art program that is called “Art in Our Town”. A bit of a spin-off from Wendi Germain’s/Springfield Restorative Justice Center’s “Not in Our Town” campaign to hold our ground with the recent crime increase that has all of us pulling together closer as neighbors and friends; business & home owners.
Art has a way of translating us to another place in time. We are forever grateful as a family for all the support we’ve felt here in Springfield, VT. I still have a heart that wants to give back, while mentoring fellow artists to reach their fullest potential.
Thank you all for encouraging me to run towards the prize that is set before me.

Not quite a Vermont native, I moved here in 1987 and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the landscape; the wholesomeness of the people. Vermont artists in particular are honored for their craft; appreciated for the vision. Today, that vision has brought me to a passion for community through art projects that benefit all. I LOVE seeing small children and their parents working side by side with seasoned artists and senior citizens. There are no limits to who can participate - I've worked with former inmates yet under supervision of the Dept of Corrections, to home school networks of intuitive souls with a GREAT sense of humor! Currently, in collaboration with Springfield on the Move, and Springfield Restorative Justice Center, and several members of the community, our project is to collaborate with fellow artists of all ability levels, and create a welcoming space right in downtown Springfield, where anyone can drop in and CREATE! Either guided, or working independently, our doors will be open to grow in the arts. This community art room is called "SPRINGFIELD ART GYM: where people are welcome to exercise their creativity!" I adore making Springfield more beautiful, and bringing out the beautiful artist in everyone. Please don't be shy in contacting me. You can find me on facebook as well.
