Growing up in a family of artists and surrounded by artwork meant that art was what we did and how we lived much as farmers farm, and fishermen fish. My father was an architect and sculptor who had grown up in France, the son of an internationally renowned etcher. It was my father who first introduced me to sculpture when he brought me my first carving material in the form of a large salt block or "lick" that he had obtained from a farm supply depot. I was eight years old.
After obtaining my academic training in Fine Arts at Kansas State University I spent the next 20 years developing my craft and teaching art courses at colleges and universities in both Toronto and more recently in Beaufort and on Hilton Head Island. My husband and I now spend the academic season in Hilton Head and summers in Toronto. This provides a change of scene and also an opportunity to work on sculpture in my Toronto studio.
I have been enriched by a number of group associations and am a founding member of the Multi Media Arts Guild, Kingston, Ontario, a member of the Beaufort Art Association, Hilton Head Art League, the Northview Group of Artists, Ontario Woodcarvers Association, and a lifetime member of the American art fraternity, Delta Phi Delta.
