Making Music

by | Feb 28, 2023

Making music encompasses every aspect of my creative being! As a child one of my first memories is standing in front of the TV watching the movie Coal Miners Daughter. Right then I asked my mom and dad for a record player with a microphone for Christmas. When I opened that little package from Santa it was beautiful and the best present ever!  Our living room soon became my stage and I loved to singing and dancing. Country music was what I grew listening to, and my Gramp was always was plunking away on the piano or picking his guitar. I took piano lessons for a short time as a child, but the saxophone was my instrument of choice. I wrote poetry as a kid, and as I look back now at some of the things I wrote, it was clearly a place for me to escape. I didn’t want to be working cattle or irrigating corn on the farm. I wanted to write poetry, take pictures, play my sax… doing anything creative.

As a young child my Granny gave me my first little Kodak camera and loved taking pictures. My sisters were the my models, along with our horses, dogs, cats, the wild flowers growing in the pastures.. anything I could photograph was my subject!  In high school and college I lived in the darkroop


Creating merchandise for my songs allows me to put all my passions to work.
