I studied art at the University of Washington where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1976.  I continued my studies in printmaking at the University of Minnesota where I worked in the lithography department for many years.  I have been a working member of Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, Minnesota since 2003.
