My family history is working with our hands — my artist father, my boatbuilder grandfather, and my machine shop great-grandfather.
My formal training in art was academic — graduating with highest honors in art history from Williams College in 1974. Years later, I came to my own creative space through life drawing at the Art League in Alexandria, VA. And when I put my hands in clay in 2008, I soon found my passion for sculpting the human form. I have been a full-time artist since 2013.
In my personal, professional and artistic life, I am committed to making the world a better place. Before becoming an artist, I taught elementary school, and I capped a 30-year legal career by retiring as the general counsel of an international labor union.
My studio is outside of Washington, DC.
