About Me

I am a fine artist that deals with photographic imagery in historic process, digital images and video. I have been an exhibiting artist since 1989 and continue to show work locally and nationally. I am recipient of numerous grants and awards including awards from The Kentucky Foundation for Women, The Artist Bill Fischer and The Kentucky Arts Council. I am currently teaching at Spalding University in Kentucky and working both commercially as well as showing her work in galleries.
