I have been an Artist all my life, and have always drawn, painted and created things. Growing up in the very rural part of Wolcott, Connecticut, I have loved nature and the colors it offers. I have worked with many different mediums, including paint, colored pencil, and glass. I have done illustration work for publication and for the Wolcott Historical Society. My recent interest is in recycling wool garments for use in my Penny Rug work. I love to take old garments and turn them into artistic pieces - table runners, wall hangings, for example.
