When I was in high school I elected to take a class in isometric drafting, becoming the teacher’s first female student in 1975. Learning technical drawing could have led to a summer internship in an engineering department at Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). Instead the job was given to a boy in my class because, the teacher said, “Boys will marry and need to provide for families.”
So my mother, who worked at DEC, helped me get hired into the Temporary Assistants Group (TAG). I spent two summers in accounting, reception, library, and warehouse jobs before being hired by Digital’s Educational Publishing Group. There I learned to design and illustrate award winning books.
A website’s linear structure is often a poor fit for presenting my decidedly non-linear art career. I’ve reorganized this site (again) this month to simplify navigation through this and other facets of my work. As part of the update, my books are now presented on their own page. Here is a link to the new page of my Books.
