Lives In Munjoy Hill

I am a wood sculptor and live and work on Munjoy Hill.  I have been teaching sculpture, drawing and design at USM since 1981. My exhibition experience is widespread and my work has been included in many collections and invitational sculpture exhibits around New England. I also serve as the chair of the Portland Public Art Committee. My husband and I love to walk and bicycle all over Portland.
