My Map for West Coast: Bering to Baja

I am so proud of the map I created in this beautiful book recently published by GFT Books. No photographer until David Freese has explored the various and wondrous landscapes along the Pacific Ocean in such depth, making this the first book to look comprehensively at what makes the natural beauty of this particular coast so memorable. You can buy West Coast: Bering to Baja on Amazon.

Oatmeal & Coffee

A favorite breakfast of mine - oatmeal with walnuts, dried sour cherries, cinnamon and brown sugar (its so fast to make and healthier than those pre-made packets). A cup of coffee is a must!

Painted Sticks

Back in December, I made some winter solstice gifts for some friends. The whole process was a joy - from the cold walk looking for smooth sticks, to painting and choosing which of my rocks to pair with them, to packaging everything up in handmade envelopes, to my delight in watching everyone open their gifts!
