I started painting in grade school and continued in high school, hiding out in the art department. I upgraded my education going to MICA and trying as many disciplines as I could fit into my schedule. I expanded on my experience by doing an exchange in California and was able to do glassblowing and see the west coast. I did miss the east coast so headed back there and landed in Boston with my husband. We had three kids and I keep doing art. I designed lampshades, sets for the theater, logos and then got my own studio and went back to doing my art. I shared this studio with my adult daughter and all was great till she passed away. I worked on my art after that and at Apple to be around people and found my voice again. Every piece has me and a piece of paper that I believe was a part of my daughter's supplies so she and I continue together.
