As the daughter and sister of succesful graphic artists/designers, my earliest memories are of exposure to art, color and form.
As a student, I took every art course offered, and have sampled many different mediums of expression as my senses and skills matured.
Although I grew up in New England, I have had a lifelong love affair with the Southwest. My interest in Hispanic culture and traditions led to a year's residency in San Miguel Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico , studying jewelry design and mural painting.
I moved to Tucson following that immersion, and found both the surroundings and the community that were then, and are now, the ideal place for me.
My appreciation for the light, color and physical characteristics of the southwest desert has inspired me to manifest art in my daily life.
Many of my creations have origins in my nature photographs.... even after more than forty years within Tucson, I still discover new visual images that spark my creativity as a craftsman.
