Born & reared in Dayton, Ohio. Received degree in Art Education at OSU. Taught art in every grade from kindergarten to senior high. Lived in Ohio. Iowa, Maryland, Maine, & Florida. Returned to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio & received my MFA in printmaking in 1992. Taught art at University of Dayton & Sinclair College. Love nature, art, music, photography, traveling, nature, gourmet cooking & baking. Moved to Colorado in 1998 & lived in a mountain community where we snowmobiled to our homes in the winter. Beautiful views, wonderful sense of community, then 7 years later growth occurred & all changed. Moved near Gunnison, off the grid at 9,000' & built my dream log home on 35 wooded acres. We heat by wood fireplace & propane. We hear only nature sounds & see bear, coyotes, moose, bobcats, weasels, & mountain birds. Love to fish, hike, raft, horseback ride, ski, skate, & hunt. The San Juan mountains are spectacular!
