I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator, photo editor, communications coordinator, and art instructor. During my years as full-time parent I became a University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, and volunteered many hours for the Art Adventure program. I currently volunteer for Thundercats Fencing Team, doing graphic design and social media.
I love creating things in the garden, the kitchen, and in the studio.
I have a degree in Fine Art, and studied photography, film, art history, ballet, as well as Spanish and Italian. I love learning, and continue my interest in these subjects.
