I was born in 1951, and have been drawing, sketching and art
making since I was five years old. I was an art major in high school. At Tyler School
of Art, I was a ceramics major and earned my teaching certificate
in Art Education. After College, I taught in the Philadelphia School District for eight
years. I continued taking courses in ceramics, printing, paper
making, collage, collograph, monoprint and monotype. Since 2003, I have been taking painting
classes and developing and deepening my knowledge of mixed media collage paintings.
I work exclusively in water based media. My method can be summed up in one word- experiment.
