Word Specialist - Writer and Editor

From 1977 through 2003, I worked as a graphic designer – as freelancer and employee – of print materials and eventually, websites. My primary clients were in transportation, finance, and the medical and healing arts fields. I volunteered for many organizations, both as a graphic designer, writer, and editor and with a large youth organization, developing a mentoring program with curriculum for girls – the first of its kind on the world wide web!

In the last three years, I have published numerous works of flash fiction, finished up a year-long blog series, Grey Hairs Rising, and have had the first in a series of paintings exhibited in a gallery group show with 30 other artists, many nationally and internationally known. I received two artist project grants to
