Self portrait from photo on Contact page, shamelessly enhanced with thicker eyebrows and hair, AND minus the wrinkles!

Writing, painting, sunrise walks, practicing yoga and pilates, and Native American drumming are among my many interests.

After graduating with a Bachelors of Arts from Denver University, I took night classes in information technology and taught arts and crafts in Richmond, Virginia.

Mid-carreer, I accepted a software developer position in Atlanta. Although it left little time for my painting, application design and development proved a fascinating and challenging outlet for an entirely different type of creativity.

In retirement, my sunrise walks along the intracoastal waterway in Thunderbolt, Georgia, coupled with my late boyfriend’s request for a portrait, triggered my metamorphosis into the artist I am today.
