I started my career in professional theater, where I realized how much I enjoy working with my hands. I moved into film and television work in Los Angeles, shopping for Set Decoration and Props, which I continue to do. For a few years my creative focus was on making textile art and several pieces were purchased for the permanent collection in the maternity ward of a Kaiser Permanente hospital. A couple were included in the book 500 Art Quilts and one received a judge's choice honor in Quilting Arts Magazine. More recently I've focused on drawing and painting. I also enjoy remodeling houses - planning and laying tile and flooring, designing cabinetry, and landscaping. Dogs, both my own and shelter dogs, take up the rest of my free time.
