I am a Florida-born and grown native. As a young person, I was always drawn to art (all things art). At Ohlone College in Fremont, Calif., I majored in business (marketing) with a minor in art. My husband and I grew a successful sales/marketing firm, which gave me the know-how to sell and represent my product and train staff.
This gave me the experience to shift my talent and career to full-time art in Asheville, N.C., with my artist husband, Bob. We had our art in Asheville galleries and later, moved with our horses to Santa Fe, N.M. There, we again created one-of-a-kind art furniture and worked in galleries that carried our works, including Leslie Flint, Panache, and Flourish galleries.
