Education:  Kansas City Art Institute, Johnson County College, majoring in Commercial Art, Graphic Design and Painting.

Employer:  Black & Veatch Engineers, Marketing/Advertising  Department, 1978-2002

Title:  Graphic Designer/Creative Art Director

After 25 years of working at Black &Veatch, I retired, and in 2005, my husband and I sold everything, followed our dream and lived on a sailboat in the Caribbean for a year. But there’s, “no place like home” and we now live in Kansas taking RV journeys wherever the wind blows and I passsionately paint…wherever and whenever.

I love painting abstract art because I feel like an explorer traveling deep inside my subconscious soul and painting my journeys onto my canvas.

I have shown many times at ArtsKC business corporations such as Burns & McDonnell Engineers and PGAV Architects for the last four years. My last gallery shows were at the Vanessa Lacy Gallery and Olathe Art Gallery.
