Author Biography & Photo

When I was 13 years old I pointed to a map of the world and told my grandmother about all the places I would go when I grew up. My grandmother, who had never left the United States asked me how I would get to all of these exotic places. I told her that I didn't know how but that I would. I chose to believe in my dreams and have traveled the world. I have been influenced by all of the places I have been. One thing that I have learned from all of my travels is that no matter the location or the culture, our hearts are fundamentally the same. All human beings want to connect, to communicate, and to be happy.
The places that have affected me most are Portland Oregon, Wellington New Zealand, and Seattle Washington. I lived in Portland, Oregon for five years. Portland is one of the most artistic places on the planet. It is where I found myself, where I found my spiritual path, the place I established roots, community, and friendships that will last a lifetime.
The longest I have lived in one place was Wellington New Zealand for 6 1/2 years. I felt "home" as soon as I arrived. I worked as a massage therapist at Weta Digital during the making of the Lord of the Rings films for almost four years. Being around such talented artists everyday inspired me to attend art school and film school in New Zealand. New Zealand's people and landscape have influenced my artwork hugely. There is a sense of community, trust, and purity that exists there. The energy of both Portland and Wellington  are found within my book and within my heart.

I then moved to Seattle Washington from NZ. I have been here for almost 4 years. Seattle is a very special place as it is the place I had my  son and is the inspiration for the birth and creation of Om Baby. Seattle is a wonderful place to manifest and create ones dreams and allows the space for them to come true. I love Seattle!
I believe in creating the world in which I want to live in. In every moment, and with every thought I endeavor to create beauty, peace, and love. The world of Om Baby is the world in which I believe in, live in, and create in. I live with my adoring husband Gray Horsfield and inspiring Om Baby, Octavius in Seattle, Washington.
