After brief careers in advertising, book design and illustration, she became interested in textile design; she studied it at The Parsons School, and worked for many years as a textile designer in home furnishings, painting birds, flowers, paisleys and fanciful patterns. She has been painting botanical subjects since 2000, having been inspired by an exhibition of Dr. Sherwood’s collection.
