I graduated from the University of Arizona with a BFA in painting and drawing in 1984.  I have gone back and forth between a professional music career and that of illustrator and teacher.  My studio work is most important to me although I have worked as an illustrator for magazines and in scientific illustration
My studio is in Sedona where I live with my husband and many pets.  I still play music professionally and I find the musical study greatly supports and enhances the process of making a visual work.
