The Traveling Pixie. The Scratch Cook. The Ramble Life.
Wife. Mom. Gigi. Friend.
Initially raised as a small town, Oklahoma girl, the scent of backdoor wheat fields and the simplicity of quaint, town squares, built the foundation of my southern/midwest U.S. roots. After relocating to a somewhat more urban area, I learned the priceless lesson of reinvention.
I have been in music education since 1995. I teach. I sing. I write. I play.
I have had the pleasure of recording at Abbey Road Studios/London, England and spending time in studio in Austin, Tx. and Wimberley, Tx.
I have traveled across the United States and continue to explore all of the wonderful places the U.S. has to offer. In addition to England, I have traveled throughout the Italian/Tuscan countryside.
I am artistic. I paint. I draw. I photograph.
I am just beginning to share my art with the world; however, my rock photography can be found in airports and casinos throughout Oklahoma.
I create with my wardrobe. I create with my hair. I create with my food.
(That's what creatives do, right? *big grin*)
I am the wife of the most amazing man in the world.
We travel. We adventure. We cook. We love... and most importantly, we laugh.
I am the mother of three, incredibly brilliant, grown, intelligent adults... ever! They are the light of my life!
I am the stepmother of two, wonderful, smart, and talented young adults, currently attending University. They are fantastic!
And most of all, I am "Gigi" to two of the CUTEST grandchildren you could imagine! They have changed my life, forever!
Why am I here?
I WANT TO INSPIRE!
I MUST make a lasting impression!
I want to leave a legacy behind; a legacy for my children and my grandchildren.
I crave to create, but most of all, I ache to share my creations.
If I can make you smile, whether by sharing a recipe that brings you joy, or providing a piece of art, possibly a song, that evokes emotion... then I have succeeded in impacting a life.
Join me on this journey!
You ARE here for a reason.
Let's do this together!
