When I was in Kindergarten, back in Czechoslovakia, I begged my Mom to take me for an audition at the local kids’ theater. She did and I failed. MISERABLY! Seeing how heartbroken I was, my mother simply ushered me next door and signed me up for art classes. No auditions necessary.  Those classes ended up defining the lens through which I look at life. 

A while later, whilst studying to become an Art Therapist at Pratt Institute, I was told over and over that everything happens for a reason. I take that to mean that I was destined to fail on stage and fall in love with art!

These days I live in Brooklyn with my English husband, two spunky girls and a wish for a dog. I do not do theatre but embarrass my family with theatrics daily.
