I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and have made artworks my entire life.  An Art Major in high school, I went on to study at Bryn Mawr College, where after focusing on Chemistry and History of Art, I fully committed to a Fine Art major, with a concentration in Printmaking.  I also studied Painting at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, and Drawing and Printmaking at The Tyler School of Art. 

I earned my MFA at The Cranbrook Academy of Art, which offered intensive, mentor-based training. This mature approach to nurturing an artist, allowed me to form a lifelong practice of intellectual and personal growth, which, I believe, can be the only true foundation for artistic expression.

Much of my work centers around the hardships of the human experience. 

I have two grown children and operate my studio out of my house, where I live with my husband of 31 years.
