I have two undergraduate degrees in Fine Art, concentrating on sculpture and photography. My Masters degree is in Museum Education, specializing in Anthropology—looking at how cultures define themselves in art… After college I worked at Jamestown Settlement (in Williamsburg Virginia). I recreated period artifacts while interpreting 17c Virginia History. Then I landed a dream job: I was an Exhibit Artist and Museum Education Specialist, at The Florida Museum of Natural History. I was part of the creative team that built a permanent exhibit—I sculpted a cave and a pitcher plant bog! In 2001 I went out on my own as a professional artist.
As co-owner EquiSea Farms, I breed and raise Dutch Friesian horses, Arabian horses and Llamas. Four of my Friesian horses are World Champions. I also share my life with cats, dogs and two rescued green-wing macaws. These beloved pets are often my art inspiration.
Farm life keeps me mostly home: I’m either in my studio creating art, or outside with our “four legged kids.” When not at home, I enjoy traveling, exploring museums, SCUBA diving, showing horses and spending time with dear friends. My camera is always at the ready!
