Surrounded by natural environs and adults ranging in interest from engineering to music, art and science, my childhood imagination flourished. I was drawn to anthropology in college and to jewelry making after school, seeking a livelihood that afforded creativity and financial stability. While operating, "Designs by Magi", over an eighteen year period, I developed my interests in natural healing and fine art painting. I studied with master painters, practiced Reiki Healing and devoted myself to painting. My paintings are exhibited throughout New England and in private collections across the country and in Europe.
