Simply put; born in Cleveland Ohio; began drawing at the ripe old age of 4 because of my mother’s wonderful little Betty Boop drawings!!
Graduated from high school on a Sunday and started at Cooper School of Art, a commerical art school, on Monday – the shortest summer vacation of my life. A year and a half later I left – 6 months before graduation.
Worked at various jobs, moved to New York for an opportunity with Pan Am at JFK International Airport because one must eat. That’s where I met my first husband and after 12 years and 2 kids, got divorced and moved back to Ohio and family… which is where I met my second husband.. it’s been 25 years together (24 married) and still counting!
Through all of the moves, relationships, kids and jobs – the art, like a lover, has always been there for me. I believe that realism is where I am and where I belong. There is nothing in the world like the feeling you get when something comes to life under your hands. I love what I do, and I’m hoping that you love it too. No grand imposing words.. no ethereal meaning to what I do.. it is a gift that only becomes viable through the eyes of the viewer… you.
In December of 2008 I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I have gone through everything I need to except I have found that healing is a lot harder than the treatments ever could be. The good news is that as of July 2011 – I’m cancer free and plan to stay that way!
