Biography  ::
I was born in Holly, Michigan. I received a B.S. in Textiles and Clothing Design from Michigan State University after which I attended the University of Michigan 2 years to study Botany.  From 1978-1990 I ran my own landscaping company. From 1990-1995 I lived in London, England where I spent most of my spare time visiting galleries and studios, experimenting with 3-D forms made of new materials and developing my art.
