She was born to missionary parents in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where they encouraged hard work and persistence to achieve fine work. It has paid off as her work has been well received in many shows thoughout Indiana. She has won awards in the Hoosier Salon as early as 1992.
She currently divides her time painting and teaching private lessons and classes in her home in Peru, Ind., to children and adults alike.
