My creativity has woven its way through all aspects of my life and formed who I am.
In 1976 I traveled from my home in Minneapolis to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I intended to spend a weekend but remained there for 20 years. It must have been the light. During that time my graphic design company, Glyphics, flourished. I worked with museums, music festivals and clients from all over the country. I developed brand identities, book layouts and cover designs, packaging concepts and promotional campaigns. Helping people find their creative voice had an unexpected benefit for me—it helped me find my own.
Graphic illustration and design provided me with the key to unlock my passion for painting. It was as if a vast reservoir of art and creativity poured into me. Painting has influenced every other form of design that I undertake. With each project, especially as they get bigger, my ability to find a vision, art direct and manage people has become a huge asset to my work and me. I now know I can take on any project because there are so many brilliant people who will guide and help me to succeed. Creative collaboration is my passion.
I studied at the University of Minneapolis, the College of Art and Design and Antioch University in San Francisco and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Design and Alternative Health. Art works I’ve created hang in public and private collections across the U.S. I reside in Santa Monica, California with my husband and spin many palettes: family, graphic design, exhibit design and curation and fine art.
