Born and raised in St. Louis, Mo., I attended Washington University School of Fine Arts and ultimately received a B.S. in Education from the University of Missouri St. Louis. I retired from teaching in 2004, which allowed me to go back to the drawing board – literally! I bought a set of colored pencils on eBay and found my niche. I'm proud that my colored pencil drawings are in private collections around the world. I have won numerous awards in the United States and Canada. I am a member of the International Guild of Realism and The United Kingdom Colored Pencil Society.

​I'm a signature member of the following art organizations:
Colored Pencil Society of America
Missouri Artisans Association
​Greater St. Louis Artists Association
