| I was born in Illinois; but raised in Beverly Hills.
Like most artists, my fascination with the arts included all art forms, theater, dance, music and the graphics. I had a stage mother who kept me active in the theater until my teens.
At my graduation from high school, I'd landed a contract at the R.K.O. Studios and a scholarship to the renowned Choinard Art Institute, in Los Angeles, California. I chose Choinard and my time there sealed my destiny.
Slipping away from my demands of the theater was easy. Finding a living in graphics was not. My first effort was in commercial advertising and I enjoyed the deadlines and challenges there.
It wasn't until my family was raised that I had time for Fine Art, which has become my all-consuming passion. I've remarried into a whole family of artists, where I'm encouraged and supported and where I finally belong.
