I was born in southeast Nebraska and raised on family farms. My families were Czech Freethinkers and I grew up in bilingual households. My family treasured art, reading creativity, music and language as well as working the land and feeling close to the land. Our trips out West after July wheat harvest were the highlight of the year for my family and I'm grateful to be able to live here in the land that filled us with awe and wonder as visitors. I earned my B.F. A. in printmaking and painting from the University of Nebraska LIncoln. I earned my M.S. in Library and information Science from Columbia University in New York, NY.
