I was four years old and my nursery class had a field trip to a local museum in Rochester NY. I was completely mesmerized by the textiles and bead work of the native Americans. I don't know how long I stood there just gazing at the work and absorbing all that the creator had to say.

(I also hold a Masters Degree in Astrophysics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy NY and have worked as an astronomer and still teach astronomy as an adjunct professor for University of Maryland University College.)

My work has continued to grow and expand and I now also count myself as a mistress of the art of bead weaving. My paintings and drawings are as important to me as ever, though, and I don't find enough time to do all that I want!

All of my work is one of a kind (with occasional limited editions). I like to play with color and texture, experiment with shape and drape and form.
