Bio: I attended Detroit's Cass Tech High School immersion in art and design. Senior year I took life drawing classes at the Society of Arts and Crafts (now known as the College for Creative Studies). At Wayne State University I studied Liberal Arts and split between academics and two and three-dimensional art. Working in drawing and crafts I explored visual perception and technique, manufacturing processes, design history and product presentation. I spent one summer at the Penland Crafts School in North Carolina studying metalcrafts, ironwork and glassblowing. At Southern Illinois University at Carbondale I continued studio study, earning an MFA with concentration in Drawing. Returning to Detroit I joined artist organizations and art galleries, producing, designing and installing exhibits. I worked as an illustrator and designer and taught art classes from primary through college levels. Art show skills led to a career in exhibit display and graphics. I currently work with paper constructions and sculpture in my home studio, clay sculpture at the AIM (Art In Motion) studio in Detroit and drawing at the Scarab Club, and the design and layout of books. Some recent publications include member annuals for the Scarab Club, artist books, children books and a novel.
