Resume

I grew up in NYC and majored in art with degrees from the University of Wisconsin and New York University. For more than 30 years, I've lived in the Philadelphia area and have taught art on the high school and college level while making a living as a scientific illustrator. I have been showing my fiber art for the last 20+ years locally and nationally.
