Ever since kindergarten I have loved painting. First with big brushes and tempera on newsprint, drawing on my school work through grade school finding my passion in High School. I knew I wanted to make a living in the arts. So I took my any work I could that was arts related including working at art supply stores. Finally I landed my dream job working at advertising agencies up and down the East Coast. In 1984 I started my own freelance business working out of my home. In 1993 I opened my first office and the business has steadily grown. Poole Communications is a full service agency that focuses on web, digital, print and video production.
I went back to school as an adult and finished my Bachelors of Science in International Business and Management at Columbia College. I took one or two classes at a time to stay out of debt and have time for studying with a very busy work schedule.
Born and raised in Washington state, I have exhibited throughout the United States and have been blessed to receive numerous awards and recognition. I’ve had one-person exhibits in Idaho Falls, ID, Atlanta, GA, Hannibal and Columbia, MO, Summerville, SC, Jacksonville and Quincy, IL. My work is in the collections of businesses and individual homes across the country.
Currently, I live on a farm with my husband and growing herd of deer that live in the back yard. We raise grapes, have a nice garden and I weirdly enough enjoy splitting wood (using a wood splitter – not by hand). I’m working on loosening up my painting and love the work of Max Hammond.
