I credit my family, my mom especially, for encouraging me to develop my many artistic interests from a young age. These days, my
hands are full keeping up with my 7 year old
Chet and 5 year old Chloe. With the help of my husband, High School teacher Tony, we find
time to explore the wonders of nature with our
Chet and Chloe. Having a family gives my
heart a feeling of happiness which is then
reflected in my art.

With a career in design for over twenty years,
I've learned that developing marketable
collections is not just talent, but hard work and
perseverance. Whether I am painting, drawing,
sculpting or sewing, I know how important it is
to trust yourself and believe in your vision.
