I am a life long crafter and lover of anything outdoors. I grew up hunting for rocks and other treasures from the earth and sea. My Dad and I say we always look down when we walk. " You never know what you will find in a gravel parking lot!" Oh my achin' neck!
I earned a degree in fine art and then a masters in exercise science. How's that for left brain and right brain?
My love for the outdoors, treasure hunting and crafts lead to creating jewelry with seaglass found near my home. As my boys became more independent I decided it was time to do something that was all about me. In 2004 on April Fool's Day I trudged through a Nor 'Easter deluge and registered as Odonata. It was a commitment to myself and I could not be happier.
Why Odonata? I once read 'The dragonfly leads you through the mist of change to a place where you find your true power and you hear the wisdom of your soul'. Dragonflies are said to represent joy, growth, transformation and mindfulness.
