My career began with art, yet it still is new for me. At 18, I began studying fine arts at C.U. Practicality led me to a successful 30-year career in graphic design but, recently, the fine art side of my soul started to scream at me. I listened. In 2016, I signed up for some classes and devoted time to a love of painting that I had put on the back shelf years ago. I'm learning. Therein lies the beauty. I have been studying oil painting for four years with the respected artist, Rey Ford. I also have taken classes and workshops with Zoey Frank,  Jake Gaedtke, Jane Hunt, Jordon Wolfson, and Terrie Lombardi. I was born and raised in Crested Butte, Colorado, as were my father and grandmother. I watched the coal mines closing down and the ski area starting up. Boulder has been my home since 1975. I attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver with a degree in Graphic Design. I live in the foothills north of Boulder with my husband, Dave Harrison. My son, Collin Harrison, lives in Majorca, Spain.
I am now happily painting in my new studio at the House of Serein House of Serein is both a community art space and a workspace for creatives.
