At age 4 I told my parents that I wanted to be an artist. Fortunately, they helped me reach my goal by taking me to galleries and art classes. After receiving a Master Degree in Fine Arts, I opened my gallery on a Historical Landmark in East Aurora on the Roycroft campus, where the beginning of the arts and crafts period began and is still a mecca for artist today.
I eventually opened my second gallery in Eat Aurora after purchasing one of the first schools in the village.  During that time, I continued to travel the USA participating in art festivals and winning awards and national recognition. After 36 years of owning an amazing gallery, I sold it and began designing products for an international gift company. Having the time of my life I hope to continue on this path designing and creating one-of-a-kind pieces that make you smile and feel as wonderful as you are!
