I was born…

with a sewing needle in my right hand and a paint brush in my left hand in a knat sized town in Northern NJ known for its spunky housewives.

My favorite thing about Arizona is…

the people. They generally are the happiest people I have ever met in all my travels.

I’m listening to…

the bubbling of my fish tank with Mozart harpsichord music playing in the background of my mind.

My family…

is shrinking. I am alone out here in Arizona, newly divorced with my surviving sister is in Texas and my brother and the rest of my family is in NJ.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Harrison Ford. When he made a lunch for Melody Griffith in “Working Woman” he stole my heart away. 

One thing I cannot live without is…

my cats. They give me unconditional love and great joy.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an archeologist and fashion designer. I became the fashion designer and have collected a massive stone collection. I am a total rock hound.

I’m inspired by…

Cirque de Soliel, Versace, Ralph Lauren and everyday people all the time.

The one person who motivates me is…

Jack Canfield. I love listening to his series “The Success Principals.”

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

editing TV. I would put a priest and Rabbi back in charge of screening out the weeds that corrupt people into thinking bad values are OK.

The perfect day…

would be on a white sandy beach in a gauzy skimp dress on the beach with someone I could not get enough of in the middle of BFE with the ocean and sea gulls making the music, with an icy bottle of champagne, Lobster Thermador, lump crabmeat cocktail and steamers.

My first job was…

the one I have now. I love drowning in my trims, jewels, fabrics and do dads playing like a little girl making beautiful things.

My favorite escape…

so far was Puerto Vallarta. We went to the top of a mountain and were only one of 2 couples dining. The food was served on big leaves and was amazing.

My life is…

starting to get better again. The last 5 years were exhausting getting divorced.

I’m currently working on…

a collection of Bodacious Buckets Neiman’s will drool over in vibrant interesting furs and fabrics.

Always…

remember to keep promises or don’t make them at all.

Never…

keep up with the Jones’s. Find your joy within.

Favorite Quote…

“We all make our own peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.” Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Biggest Dream…

to design something fabulous for someone in Dubai and get my work in Harrods.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people lost in texting time forgetting to be present. Mediocrity in effort. Laziness and victim mentality makes no sense to me.
