My world has always had music in it, and so many of my formative memories involve musical interludes. The first time I sang on stage, I was about four. I improved with age. I love to sing, although becoming deaf in one ear has put rather a damper on that. And I love music of all types, although I loathe twangy Country and Western, and I’m not fond of yodeling or punk.

Singing is my art; beyond that, I got nothin’ but a good eye and a blog. I am, however, fortunate to be surrounded by amazingly talented family and friends who are artists. The icon introducing this page is by Tori Life-Goto, my semi-sister, and the artwork throughout our house is by her mom, Trish, and my mom, Holly.

This page showcases their work and the works of others I find along my travels, as well as music and other art.
