About Me

I believe that your life is your art and Cicada Moon Workshop is my testament to the life I am making on this Earth.

My family and I have a small wooded property in Georgia, we live on small lake and tend to some wild gardens and are growing a teeny-tiny farm.

Your life is your art.

Make it good!
