I studied art in high school, at the University of Wisconsin and at the Harrington School of Design. I've held a variety of jobs over the years and for twenty-five years I worked as a Registered Nurse at mental health facilities. Intermittently I have felt compelled to make art as my circumstances allowed. Lately I have more time on my hands. I live and work in Chicago where I have a studio at the Greenleaf Art Center.
