I'm a graduate of The California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California, class of 1965. My degree is in painting.
I designed art needlework kits for many years working as the Product Development Manager for Sunset Designs. I developed products for Peking Handicraft: needlepoint items, quilts and wood products. Working as a freelance designer, I traveled to China to design a line of ribbon and floral products. I have designed everything from stuffed animals to fabric food to T-shirts kits, wood products to paper mache animals and birds.
I work with manufacturing companies who produce my designs or put them on their products. I have a small greeting card and poster company.
