She earned her BA in 1972 and her MA in 1974, both from Marshall University.

Her professional career also included other positions such as designer/planner of the West Virginia Permanent Collection Exhibition at the West Virginia Cultural Center and co-founder of the Museum in the Community in Winfield, WV.

She also participated in numerous juried shows and won several awards for her work, including the Governor’s award in 1985 and 1993 as part of the WV Juried Exhibition at the WV Cultural Center. Other juried exhibitions she participated in were in several states across the country. She had a passion for life and remained active in the art community very late in life.
