graduated with a BFA in oil painting and found that it was just the beginning
of her education. She has won numerous awards for fine art and illustration
over the years and has had work appear in several books and magazines. She’s
had numerous one-woman exhibits and is probably most known locally for the
artwork she creates for the walls of Biggby coffee shops. She teaches several
courses at the Interlochen Summer Adult Arts program. She loves to make marks
in any medium, be it paint, clay, dirt or dough. It's as close to being a
dancer as she'll ever get—brain dancing.
