She was born on the edge of the Sandhills of Nebraska. Her first art attempts were the faces of fellow students from their school photos. After graduation, she attended 1-1/2 years in Chicago at art school and worked in a design studio.
The first scratchboard picture she completed was "the crying woman". This is the third rendering of the picture. Every time she makes a new rendering, the eyes tell the story.

In a world that vibrates with vivid hues and brilliant tints reflected by nature and perceived by man, the artist works in a world of shadow and light to depict graphically detailed work.
The subject becomes trapped in a splinter of time and is captured on scratchboard with a technique that is uniquely the artist's own innovation.
Her premise appeals to the eye with images frozen in realism.
