Biography


My lifeline seems to be meandering over the landscape`-- actually more like a river than a road.  The confluence of many wandering rivulets  brought me to my present form.  After a false start in pre-med, I blended my college major in theatre and speech with a secondary teaching degree.  Then for a decade, I taught speech communication at the local university.  I attended a couple of art classes along the way but never really took time for more than that.  Life was busy.
 
Our family grew. Four children later, I left academia to become a financial planner.  Turns out I loved running a business.  Who knew?  I cherished my clients and the individuals with whom I worked.   32 years later, it was time to retire and set a new course.   I now get to put away charts, efficiency models and financial forecasting for something else, something new, something that speaks to another part of my being. 
 
I have time.  I am eager and hungry to learn, to develop my skills and to try new things.  Color and form excite me.  I'm a happy lady.  I love the magic of blending paint colors and creating new hues.  It's now time to inhabit a new space for me filled with light and contrast and ask, "what's next?"
