Born in Highland Park, IL.,  lives and works in Boston, MA. 

Textile art has always been in my life, though relegated to a minor position for many years.  After 35 years of focusing on construction management and architectural design work, textile work has now moved to a center position.  At present my studio is in Hyde Park, MA., and I often each classes and workshops at the Eliot School, Classes in Crafts & Fine Arts.
