Worked as a textile designer in NYC for many years, pre-computer. Adored putting designs into repeat and making colorings by hand. Learned to love gouache there. Worked in the Torpedo Factory Art Center here in VA as a fiber artist after relocating to VA. Morphed into teaching special needs children for several reasons for the past 15 years, and made little art. I am now working in sketchbooks and teaching myself to draw beyond florals, largely through Sketchbook Skool. Getting up the courage to start posting on Doodle Addicts.
