Thank you
My life has taken me in many different directions but it always circles back to the arts and the joy of creating.  

I grew up in New York state, received a BFA from SUNY New Paltz and began my post college life in Boston working in the field of commercial photography.  Some time after that, I spent 8 wonderful years as a resident artist at Moody St, Studios, Waltham - good times, good art, good friends. 
 
I combined my art, ideas and love of nature, studied horticulture and founded Artful Gardens, where I designed and built residential gardens for 25 years. Spending  my days outside in the gardens was the perfect business and a nice lifestyle.

Now, I feel I am at home again, excited to be creating in a beautiful space at MotherBrook Arts and Community Center in Dedham MA, working among a great group of talented artists.
