I’m on the CCAC board to… help bring a broad range of art to kids and adults through amazing events and interactive classes.
My arts background includes… a strong passion for all types of arts. I was very involved with the symphony growing up in Holland. I played with the Grand Rapids youth symphony and 4 local symphony’s. Music gave me the opportunity to travel to Europe with the Blue Lake international symphony. I also love the visual arts. I retired from the corporate world and in 2008 began my journey and passion as a professional jewelry artist. I love transforming the metal. What do I do on my days off? More art! I love learning all mediums and have play dates with my art soulmate where we do glass, pottery, painting, and anything artsy.
Outside of the arts I enjoy… family time, gardening, kayaking, hiking, biking, cooking, scuba diving, and of course more art!
