This multi-talented artist has a short list of her long career in the writings mentioned here:
Growing up in Rhode Island with a gift for the visual arts, her mother often reminded her that she was using crayons before she could walk. Her artwork in elementary school art classes was admired by others and she is often remembered by classmates as the one who loved to draw and paint.
First job in the art field was at 12 years old; she assisted an artist in teaching arts & crafts to elementary school kids at the local playground. Next, in high school, a part time job with SPACE which is a graphic art studio located in Providence, R.I. After graduating; a freelance artist painting signs and murals, creating cards and invitations, painting house portraits in watercolors and pet portraits in acrylics. She created and illustrated the children’s book “Islands in Heaven” written by Dr. Santi Meunier.
