I've always been happiest working with my hands, creating things. So I naturally gravitated toward all the art classes I could take in college. I obtained a degree in Art with an emphasis in Commercial Art. I worked in the advertising field for a while, then, because of my interest in psychology, continued my education to obtain a MA in Art Therapy. I was interested in Geriatric Art at the time and loved working with elderly individuals exploring their past and emotions throughout their artistic expressions.
I then decided to pursue a Secondary Teaching Credential in Art and consequently taught art to Middle and High School students for 20 years in Santa Rosa. After retiring in 2005, I resolved to devote myself to developing my own art. I've since been involved with galleries in Lucerne and Lakeport in Lake County, Sebastopol, Glenn Ellen, Davis, and now, Fulton Crossing Gallery
