I did not set out to be an artist. My college degree was in Audiology. But sometime around 1994, I digressed. What I know about art and about fiber as a medium I learned from taking classes and from working alongside other artists.
I live and work in Quincy, Illinois, where I am inspired by the town’s rich architectural history and the mighty Mississippi River. I am also influenced by the work of artists Helen Frankenthaler and Edward Tufte.
I exhibit regionally and am a member artist of The Alliance Art Gallery in Hannibal, Missouri. I have been very fortunate to have received numerous awards and honors for my work.
