A passion for art led me to Rochester Institute of Technology to obtain a degree in Graphic Design in 1983. I worked in the world of advertising in the 80's but veered off the professional career path to focus on family and raise a daughter. There were numerous art projects and volunteer jobs that kept me connected to the arts during those years. I re-connected with fine art by taking classes and joining groups. One thing led to another and the art projects started collecting and here I am with work to display! I enjoy acrylic painting, glass mosaics, mixed media and a good craft project is never out of reach.
I have lived in a number of states but have now set-up home base in Asheville. I have enjoyed countless influences in this location: classes, galleries, the river arts district, street art and especially the natural beauty of the area. It is a wonderful place to relax and create!
