My artist grandfather gave me a sketchbook for my first birthday. I sold my first painting when I was in my early teens. Art has always been a part of my life.
I have spent most of the last thirty-five years as a homemaker and mother, raising my family and homeschooling my children. Even so, I always found time and resources for art: fiber arts, drawing, painting, calligraphy, printmaking, and graphic design.
I have a B.A. in studio art from the University of Maine at Augusta. I have been an art gallery manager and a business consultant. My work has been shown in galleries and public buildings in Ohio, Maryland and Maine, and I have work in private collections in many parts of the United States and overseas.
I live in a 180-year-old farmhouse in the mountains of western Maine.
