 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 teach classes and workshops at the Eliot School, Classes in Crafts & Fine Arts. My work has been in various galleries and shows in the area, as well as the Lowell Quilt Festival. 


B.S, 1979  in Architecture, Washington University,  St. Louis, MO.
