I was born and grew up in the Detroit area of Michigan. I received my BA in visual art from Albion college and went on to receive my BFA from the Oregon College of Art and Craft majoring in Textiles.
After graduating in 1999 (party like), I impulsively moved to Colorado, wistfully following a childhood dream. I now live in the Pikes Peak region of Colorado and share my life with my print-maker husband Nikos, and our strong willed and artistic children, Onora and Ivy.

These drawings are part of an ongoing project fueled by intuition. I restricted the design element to line, texture and composition. These are small in scale, the smallest 6 x 6 inches and the largest being 12 x 12 inches.
