I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas in 1977 with a fine arts degree. Then, I worked as a layout artist at a family-owned, paste-up weekly advertisement paper in Sierra Vista, Arizona. I was offered better employment as a technical illustrator at Kentron International in Arizona. After my husband finished his Army years, we moved back home to Little Rock, where I was employed as an artist at the ABC affiliate, KATV Chanel 7. I have done freelance work for the poetry group in Arkansas, the Camelot Hotel, and Shorty Smalls Restaurant. I enjoy design work in any application needed to help develop the goals of the company.
