My Bio

I started drawing with a pencil and paper as a child and still do, but last year, I started doing digital art using PhotoShop and my trackball. My husband got me an Intuos stylus & pad last Christmas and I've been absorbed with that. Over the years, I attended college (5 degrees), worked for NOAA, the National Park Service (Mesa Verde & Glacier NP), was a professional tax preparer, archivist and now, author & artist. Oh, I got married along the way also; it's been 32 years of bliss.

Currently, all my art has been for Golden Cocker Press (cover art, interiors, promos, etc.)
