Being born and raised in New Orleans gave me a rather skewed outlook on life. Going to Catholic convent schools from kindergarten through college didn’t help straighten that out. I always wanted to be an artist and, as a child, assumed all my friends did too, when they weren’t playing doctor. It wasn’t true. They didn’t want to be doctors either, just married to one. I was the first person in my family to go to college which pushed me out of the nest, never to return. I’ve been using art as a means of finding my way. I decided to get my MFA at the age of 40 thinking that I’d use it to teach. When I realized that I didn’t want to be an academic, I turned to the theater, starting at The American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. I later ran my own company responsible for theatre and trade show props. But what I always wanted to do was my own work. And now I am.
