I received my BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in the 70's and worked as an artist for several years before starting my own architectural communications business in the 80's. I was the first woman owned Signage Company in Cleveland and specialized in designing and manufacturing sign systems for hospitals and developers. After the arrival of my first child I sold the company. In the 90's I began working for non profits as I raised my family. In 2013 I retired to go back to my first career as an artist and an advocate for the arts.
I donate my art to worthwhile causes such as: Shaker Arts Council, Cleveland Institiute of Art, Gordon Square Arts District, Shaker Launch House, Spaces, AIDS Task Force
I am currently exhibiting my drawings at Maria Neil Project in Waterloo and Juma Gallery in Shaker Heights.
I am on the Alumni Board of The Cleveland Institiute of Art
I am a past president of Shaker Arts Council
