I was born in 1951, and have been drawing, sketching and art making since I was five years old.

I was an art major in high school. At Tyler School of Art, I was a ceramics major and earned my teaching certificate in Art Education.

After college, I taught in the Philadelphia School District for eight years. I continued taking courses in ceramics, printing, paper making, collage, collograph, monoprint and monotype.

Since 2003, I have been taking painting classes and developing and deepening my knowledge of mixed media collage paintings. I work exclusively in water based media. My method can be summed up in one word- experiment.
