Art and Music have been my passions since childhood. I received my B.F.A. from St. Lawrence University and my M.C. from Arizona State University.
My artistic pursuits include plein air painting, photography, and throwing functional stoneware pottery. I taught Art in the public schools in Arizona for 33 years.
Durango and the beauty of the mountains beckoned. The natural world is my inspiration and I love the vibrancy of pastel. Having thrown pots since college, there is still magic in opening the gas kiln!
Celtic and French Canadian Fiddle captivated me upon hearing the music of Master Fiddler, Louis Beaudoin. I play with the Celtic Band, Truckely Howe, featuring Ed Webb on flute and whistles, Steve Martin on Octave Mandolin and tenor banjo, Patrick Dressen on guitar, Erick Morningstar on Bodran and Bouzouki, and Susan Vidal on whistle and cello.
