I graduated from Kendall School of Design in l976. After a couple of years freelancing I landed a job at the Grand Rapids Press working in the Editorial Art department for twenty-five years. I loved reading the stories that I would have to illustrate; food, editorial content, human interest...and sometimes there were trials I had to attend. This was all great but I always had other art on my mind. Watercolor and acrylic painting was something that stayed with me. In the last five years I picked up a love for mosaics and really dove into it as well as paper clay and glass.
