Her interest in anatomy and drawing led her to the Art Academy of Cincinnati where she found her love of working with oils and studying the "Masters". She continues to explore the visual arts as a freelance photographer, and paints with a focus on portraiture and occasionally into set painting with community theater. She is also active as a practitioner in the Healing Touch community.
