artist & librarian
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of a librarian? We may seem like the boring, brainy types, but in fact we are lovers of stories and the people who write them. And me? I’m a WORSHIPPER of authors and their storytelling. I used to ride my bike to our town library and get lost amongst the books in the upstairs children’s room. I chose to be a librarian, so I could be near books and help others find joy in reading and learning.
Stories, told with words or pictures, are the basic building block of humanity. These stories connect us and permit us to understand the world beyond our front door. They encourage us, inspire us, provide hope, and at the end of difficult moments, stories can heal our hearts, transform our thoughts and strengthen our souls. I will always be a librarian! I love to research, read, and learn.
Every day I comes to work inspired to create moments of joy through beautiful art and meaningful messages that celebrate reading, relationships and the joys in our lives. And a large part of what inspires me is my love of the written word and the connections we have with books and one another. I was managing a large, busy library in North Carolina, determined to pursue my dream to combine my passion for education, connection and art, which has become Book Pearls Creations.
