I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a child, drawing and making things was a big part of my life. Our family was a creative lot, making and building things out of whatever we had. I learned to sew making most of my own clothes starting around age 12. I spent hours drawing at home, art class was my favorite and the art room was where I hid during the dreaded pep rallies. What a great day it was when I went to college to be with like-minded often ask whether I went to art school, and yes, I did.  In fact, a lot of what I learned when studying design and illustration can be directly applied to painting. But I attribute much of what I know about painting to the many wonderful artists who share their expertise through workshops. I owe a lot to these teachers who have shown me how to see. Once you learn how to see, everything is a visual treat.
