Designing and crafting since childhood, my creativity blossomed at age 12 with the gift of my first painting set. In high school and college I started a specialty painted clothing business that thrived. Graduating in just three years with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ringling School of Art and Design, I majored in Graphic Design with photography and illustration experience.
While making a living in the Advertising and Marketing Industry, I dove into the craft design world again creating original projects with paint, wire, canvas, wood, beads, rubber stamps and paper. I enjoy bringing a unique twist to my designs by incorporating traditional materials in unconventional ways.
I have extensive experience in advertising, marketing and copy writing. I have taught a variety of craft classes to adults and children. I also enjoy the challenge of new product development and original project design.
I live with my family in sunny Southwest Florida and in addition to my creative work, I enjoy traveling, cooking, boating and reading.
