i can read my essays to your group

I have essays to share with your group.  I have a collection of sweet commentaries about topics like: 

  • raising children

  • love

  • early childhood

  • becoming a parent 

  • traveling in the wilderness

  • being present to this moment

  • aging (gracefully?) 


What does your group want to hear?  We could all do a writing exercise.  We could even do some drawing and writing… and talk about visual practice.  Seems like we’d all gather on Zoom, doesn’t it?  Or perhaps in a park (I have a nice loud speaking voice) or in your spacious yard?  I’m organized, humorous, and kind. I am available October through November 2020 for an hour-long session with your group.   It’ll cost you about $75-$100.   Contact me in the form below.  

i can draw you and your beloved for your Wedding or event

Consider having an illustrator (me!) make an invitation for you.  Let’s talk about how I could draw you and your beloved for your engagement announcement, or make thank you notes that depict your event.  I’m just breaking into this.

It’ll cost you about $50 per drawing, or we can bundle and figure it out.  You get the digital version along with the original!  Or I can get it printed for you.  Let’s talk.  Contact me in the form below.

these sessions are on hold right now...

I have AMI Montessori training for children ages 3-6 and am

currently teaching the (English) language materials virtually at a Montessori school, as well as leading family singing sessions at another Montessori school.

I would be happy to talk with you about Montessori, or discuss your child's progress.  

Because of the winter weather,  I can't offer learning sessions.

We shall see what the spring will bring!  Wash your hands! Wear your mask!
