Design Intense is just one of my many creative outlets.

Cooking with the kids


My background is very eclectic, I grew up in NYC in family of bohemian fine artists. I spent a lot of time in Haiti as a child. I traveled to Moscow at 17 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the end of WWII. I went to Paris as a young woman with just my backpack and a camera. I sold my house and moved to the Dominican Republic with no income and a smattering of Spanish.

I may do foolish things but I do them with enthusiasm. — Liza Minelli

I am not afraid to take risks, think out of the box or push the envelope. To me, that’s what life is all about.

In addition to being the owner and Creative Director of Design Intense, I take care of two beautiful, highly-creative kids; I write for several blogs including my own; I am a fiber artist, photographer, poet and gourmet cook.
