My career as a professional artist began at age eight. I painted rocks and made doll clothes that I sold from a stand in front of our house. My "beautful" rocks sold better than lemonade!
I studied Fine Arts at Indiana University, then Illustration at Kendall College in Grand Rapids, MI. I went on to work in graphic design and public relations in a variety of industries while I followed my husband around the world during his Air Force career. We've lived in lots of cool places.
My true love is to experience the beauty in everyday life whether that’s nature, architecture, antiques, the creative work of others or my own experimentation. I enjoy working with paint, fabric and fiber, jewelry, paper and other media.
