I was born in 1946 in Detroit, Michigan, where I attended the public schools and earned a BA at Wayne State University. I was a federal employee in Washington, DC, and a social worker in Michigan before moving to North Carolina and the newsroom of The Charlotte Observer. While still at the newspaper, I took evening art classes at Central Piedmont Community College and continued into the fine arts program at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. My studies in New York City began in 2009.
