As a little girl, I was encouraged to express myself through art. After a successful 25 year career as an Interior Designer, my journey in life took an unexpected turn. In April 2006, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, while in treatment I re-discovered the healing power of art. I re-explored my love of paint and mixed media collage as well as dabbled in new areas of photography and fused glass. Color has always played an important role in my life. My favorite themes are hearts, flowers and love.
