I have been enchanted with color since childhood, when I made my own coloring books with paper my father brought home from Aetna Life Insurance Co. I started working right after high school to escape home and earn money for art school. After many detours, including work on a kibbutz and traveling through Europe, I started at DAAP, University of Cincinnati, as a painting major, with a minor in film. I started my life as a painter in a little roachy apartment on Court Street in downtown Cincinnati, above the apartment where Hudson, a performance artist, lived. I had several exhibits, won some prizes, then married an artist/bartender/insurance agent. Had a little baby boy. I thought illustration might be fun so went back to school at the Art Academy of Cincinnati for a couple of years. I did illustration and produced work for magazines, newsletters, CD covers, calendars, posters, all kinds of things. I continued to paint and draw, and was part of a group of artists who exhibited in Germany in 2000. I changed my style to abstract around 2005. Currently I am represented by Wheelhouse Gallery (formerly BDeemer Gallery) in Louisville, KY.
