I was born in New York City and grew up in New York State. A guidance counselor suggested that I apply to Rhode Island School of Design. I went for an interview and they accepted me. I spent four amazing years there.
I went to New York City and worked as a textile designer and teacher of design for many years. I spent hours in the museums and galleries. Pollack, Rauschenberg, De Kooning, Warhol, Stella, Rothko, Tworkov, and Frankenthaler were some of the cogent artists working then. I saw their earliest shows.
I have been living, drawing, and painting in Maryland ever since.
