An art major in college, then graduated from the Louise Salinger Academy of Fashion Design. I have worked for several clothing manufacturing companies in San Francisco,designed and sold to shops, worked with deigners and private dressmaking for over 20 years. Taught for four years at adult education sewing and quilting. Now that the children are grown and I am retired I am once again able to pursue my first love of making art. Non practical, having to please no one, just for fun and I am having alot of fun.
