From 2004-2008 I was Broadcast Graphics Manager at QVC. I have been a member of the Broadcast Design Association since 1984, and served as a BDA judge for their annual design conferences since 1997. I have won numerous awards from the BDA and from the International Monitor Awards, Cable Advertising and Promotions, as well as artist grants.

Throughout my commercial career in broadcasting, I kept painting and exhibiting. Etsy has allowed me to reach a far greater audience and I appreciate the support of my loyal patrons.
