I'm an artist. I have worked in steel, bronze, ceramics and various other materials. I am also an equestrian and have been involved with horses my whole life. I have always been drawn to sustainability and purchased my farm so I could see all my various passions come together and work off of each other to create a center of healthy living, production and creativity. I believe we are at a time where people need to return to being able to provide for themselves not just out of physical necessity, but as a spiritual necessity as well, for a much more rewarding and fulfilling happy life. It is my belief that being involved with horses, art and the growing of healthy food can be all a part of this wonderful journey.

The Gulf coast is an hours drive, the East coast about 1.5 hours. Cities with a two hour drive include St. Augustine, Orlando, Ocala, and Tampa. North Florida is a natural wonder with hikes, trails, rivers and springs all relatively close. There is also a large permaculture and organic farming community in the area.
