I have been drawn to art since childhood. During my school years, I decided to go into commercial art in order to make a living at what I loved to do. I attended Atlanta College of Art and Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, then worked in a variety of studios and agencies, and ended up at GM and EDS as an art director. After 20+ years in the commercial art field, I realized I had strayed from the things I really loved about art, and so retired early from my job to go back to the more fulfilling field of fine art. I paint with a local figure-painting group, which keeps me painting at the very least once a week. When I’m in my studio at home, I work in oil or mixed media, on a variety of subjects, depending on my mood and inspiration of the day. I live with my husband and three cats in Southeast Michigan.
