I have loved art all my life and have always been doing it. In high school I was allowed to spend my free hour in the art room. After receiving an art education degree at Miami University in Oxford Ohio, I taught art. With taking added classes I taught kindergaten and preschool. I have been in art groups and shown in art shows, winning some awards. My work has been in shops and galleries around the country, including in Scottsdale. In Michigan, where I live now, I have been in Art Prize and my pieces have shown at the Muskegon Museum of Art's Regional.
