I was born and raised in the Rochester, New York, area. After receiving a degree in art education from the NY State University College at Buffalo, I taught elementary school art for thirty-four years in western New York. During that time, I receive a masters degree in weaving and textile design from Rochester Institute of Technology and a certificate from Graphic Careers in Rochester. After many years as a water colorist and fiber artist, I began working with papers in a collage format. In retirement I have developed a body of work using papers and drawing and painting media. Most of my work is abstract, non-representational in nature, inspired by the materials I have collected and use in my work. Color, texture, and line play a large role in the pieces. I also have produced a large collection of unique, custom greeting cards that incorporate many of the elements found in my framed art.
