I started by growing up in my family salon/spa where I developed an artistic hand and a deep love to serve people.
When I was 24 I married a Russian hockey player and my life became a constant moving landscape. To this date I have moved over 30x's. In my early years of marriage we lived in America and my husband played in the minor leagues. I began doing art and craft shows for extra money. I have participated in 100's of them through the years with different mediums. I've traveled from my home town of Detroit to Boston, Denver, Houston and everywhere in between that my truck and trailer could take me. Then we moved to Russia in 2002 so my husband could further his career and I spent the next 7 years in a foreign land with a very rich history and culture. Cooking has always been a gifting in my arsenal so I really began to focus on it when I was in Russia- quite frankly because I had nothing else to do there. Years later cookies would become a significant part of my life and here I am now thanks to Julia M Usher and Cookie Connection.
