Born in Ohio to great parents. Ken and Irma were married over 50 years! Together, they allowed her to explore her creative side. Artistry is in the family. Her dad was a painter and his dad and grandmother were as well. As a youngster she painted rocks with a mud mixture and then traded them with her neighborhood pals for other childlike wonders. As a young woman her interest and talent in photography led her to build a darkroom in the basement (thanks dad!) which moved her toward a career in the graphic arts. She worked at a newspaper, print shop and later she founded Cynergie Studio.
