Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to L.A. in 1964. In 1982, after raising a family, I returned to school and obtained a second B.A. and M.A. in Art. Since 1982 I have been a working artist building my body of work, doing commissions for individuals and companies, marketing and display aesthetics, and taught drawing and sculpture to both adults and children. I am grateful for the ability to express myself through my creations and in doing so tough the hearts and souls of others in significant and enduring ways.
