I was born and raised in upstate New York. After graduating from the State University of New York at Cortland, I began my career in education. I have lived in various parts of the country, including Florida, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington state. While residing in Washington state I received my Masters Degree in Education. I moved to Illinois in 2006. We have two grown children, a son and a daughter.
I longed to draw as a child but never found the time to pursue that desire. While attending the Naperville Art Fair after my retirement in 2013, I met Andie and discovered Beech Tree Studio talent. I have been studying colored pencil art with Andie since September of 2013.
