I am a native of Michigan. I attended Ball State University in the 60's with an art major. I later moved to Boston, Cambridge area where I developed formative relationships with other young artists. After eight years on the east coast I left to move to an old family farm in Michigan where I would have studio space and began to exhibit in Michigan and Chicago. I have been in numerous group shows in museums and galleries. I showed with Sazama Gallery in Chicago in the eighties and nineties. I was a recipient of a 1990 Michigan Council for the Arts Award. My husband and I both maintain studios in our Michigan country home close to nature and our two dogs and two cats.
