As an Army officer’s daughter, I was fortunate to travel widely and be educated in various regions of the United States, Europe, and the Near East.
In 1970, I graduated high school from Munich American High School in Munich, Germany. In 1974, I graduated from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, a small, private, liberal arts college, where I explored creative writing, clay, photography, printmaking and drawing. In 1977 I moved to Texas from Florida and enrolled in the University of North Texas, graduating in 1980 with an MFA in ceramics and sculpture. I found employment in industry, working in factories, architectural model shops, toy prototype fabrication, and commercial printing. I stayed and grew roots in Denton County, married and lost a husband to cancer in 2007, and taught high school art: Drawing 2-4 and Art 1 for 14 years at Flower Mound High School in Flower Mound, Texas.
In September 2014, I retired from teaching and moved to San Marcos, Texas, where I have a spacious studio. Currently, I have returned to drawing and have almost completed my new ceramics studio. My emphasis is on the face and human figure.
